"When Pierre Berton describes a battle, you are right there. You've got to know the commanders; you've met some of the eager young soldiers; you care about what happens to them. Once the guns start firing, you are both exhilarated and fearful."
-- Charlotte Gray, from the foreword
"Written in a style that will be easily understood... the book is one that should stimulate a strong interest in Canadian history."
-- CM Magazine
"This book is ideal resource for teachers or for parents who want their children to take a better look at our nations history and to better appreciate the values we have and where those values come from. Written by perhaps the foremost authority on Canadian history, the pages will turn quickly but end with a new appreciation of a war that should not be forgotten and the battles and heroes that gave us our freedom."
