Synopses & Reviews
The triumph of individuals over geographic obstacles in the age of Canadian expansionism.
"The book is profusely illustrated with clear and well-defined maps, always important but sadly neglected in many military histories. This is an important history because it goes beyond a 'drum and trumpet' approach and concentrates on the triumph of individuals over geographic obstacles in the age of Canadian expansionism." Shaun R.G. Brown
