Forged in Fire: From the Vikings to Versailles, 1000-1919

In Defence of Others: World Warriors and Peacekeepers, 1920-2000

Following the Great War, Canada took her first independent steps on the world stage. As a signatory on the Versailles Treaty "to end all wars," our fledgling nation accepted an immense global responsibility to protect the peace beyond our own shores. In the subsequent eight decades, Canada has answered the call on numerous occasions: fighting when necessary and peacekeeping where possible.

Yugo peacekeeper.jpg (332980 bytes)In Defence of Others includes Canadian volunteers in the Spanish Civil War, World War II, the Korean War, the Cold War, Lester B. Pearson's Suez peacekeeping initiative, Cyprus, the FLQ Crisis, the Oka standoff and the Persian Gulf War; as well as our peacemaking in Croatia, Bosnia, Somalia, Cambodia, Rwanda, Haiti, East Timor and Kosovo. This volume also covers the 1999 air campaign against Yugoslavia.
