New Book on the Military History of Quebec City
A presentation was held this week at the Artillery Park Heritage Site in Quebec City by the Minister of Canadian Heritage, Josée Verner, to launch a new book, Québec, ville militaire, 1608-2008 / The Military History of Quebec City, 1608-2008. A collaborative effort by Parks Canada (André Charbonneau, Yvon Desloges and Larry Ostola) and Department of National Defence (Serge Bernier and Jacques Castonguay) historians, the book was published by Art Global out of Montreal. Its launch comes as part of the celebration of the 400th anniversary of the founding of Quebec City.
