Discover the History of Québec and Canada through the streets of Old Québec! Our guide will highlight the most significant steps of Canadian history and their repercussions on Québec City. Site of the first European settlement in North America in the 1540s, Québec City is the oldest continuously inhabited settlement in Canada from 1608, the year Champlain left Acadia to settle along the St.Lawrence River. Quebec City has a unique French, British and Canadian heritage observable through its institutions and architecture. Let our guide tell you the Story of a Nation founded by French explorers and conquered by the British during the Seven Years War on the Plains of Abraham Battlefield. In the years following the 1867 Confederation of Canada, 10 provinces and 3 territories were created from initial British Colonies and Hudson Bay Company’s fur trading territories to form the present day second largest country in the world, from coast to coast.
The war between the Republic of Cascadia and the rogue nation Western Canada is raging. With support from President Cruz in the United States, Gordon Van Zandt has assembled a formidable army to march north and engage the forces of Western Canada, who have occupied much of the panhandle of Idaho. Gordon must defeat Jacques and his army swiftly, but to do so requires a final decisive battle. This battle will be do or die for Gordon and his fledgling republic, but is not the only problem Gordon is facing. With much of his attention focused on Jacques, he must also dedicate time to a political war brewing in McCall and Olympia. There he'll discover his adversary is the most cunning and cut-throat of any enemy he has ever faced on the battlefield. When it all ends, some who've stood with Gordon will be lost and those who remain pray that their sacrifices will usher in the new world they've been fighting so hard for. 1. Language: English.

Arron Perry. Rob Furlong. Craig Harrison. Legendary snipers. In researching the competition for who had the longest distance kill in military history, the majority of laymen would expect to see a Navy SEAL or a Marine heading the top of the list. A little research, however, shows the top three long-shot kills are Craig Harrison (United Kingdom), Rob Furlong (Canada), and Arron Perry (Canada). The late Chris Kyle, of American Sniper fame, is eighth on the list. There is a South African Special Forces sniper that is sixth on the list whose name is withheld as is a Norwegian Army sniper. Snipers operate under the motto of not boasting about their kills. In the defense of the top three snipers listed above, they have all been outed by the media or their own military. Harrison's name had been released after he made the record-setting kill and had to go into hiding. Furlong and Perry's had similar circumstances with the media after being investigated for conduct unbecoming. This book will take a look at the feats the men above performed on the battlefield as well as the psychological toll that the sniper profession had on their lives. 1. Language: English.

A Sweeping, Dramatic History of the Americans Who Chose to Side with the British in the Revolution.... The American Revolution was not simply a battle between independence-minded colonists and the oppressive British. As Thomas B. Allen reminds us, it was also a savage and often deeply personal civil war, in which conflicting visions of America pitted neighbor against neighbor and Patriot against Tory on the battlefield, the village green, and even in church. In this outstanding and vital history, Allen tells the complete story of these other Americans, tracing their lives and experiences throughout the revolutionary period. New York City and Philadelphia were Tory strongholds through much of the war, and at times in the Carolinas and Georgia there were more trained and armed Tories than Redcoats. The Revolution also produced one of the greatest and least known migrations in Western history. More than 80,000 Tories left America, most of them relocating to Canada. John Adams once said that he feared there would never be a good history of the American Revolution because so many documents had left the country with the Tories. Based on documents in archives from Nova Scotia to London, Tories adds a fresh perspective to our knowledge of the Revolution and sheds an important new light on the little-known figures whose lives were forever changed when they remained faithful to their mother country. 1.
