A Reader's Guide to Canadian Military History

Library and Archives Canada has revised its online guide to publications in Canadian military history, "From Colony to Country: A Reader's Guide to Canadian Military History". In addition to the implementation of a new design, two new campaign themes - the Rebellions of 1837-38 and the Second World War - and material on Aboriginal Soldiers in the First World War has been incorporated. The revised series of campaigns discussed include: Canadian Military History: An Overview; War of 1812; Rebellions of 1837 and 1838; Northwest Campaign; South African War; First World War; and, Second World War. As the site notes, "Each military campaign has been divided into ten new subsections that contain texts, notes and bibliographic references." These subsections are: general references, government and the military, troops and traditions, personal stories, aboriginal peoples, multicultural communities, women, art, music and literature, commemorations, and web research.
