This charming gift book takes a humorous look at the little-known history of US/Canadian hostilities, focusing on the top-secret invasion plans each country drew up for the other during the 1920's and 30's. Featuring extended (and hilarious) excerpts from each (now de-classified) plan, as well as invasion maps, illustrations, and historical anecdotes that chart the unneighborly history along the 5,000 miles of the "world's friendliest border."

MEDIA REVIEWS
"We were charmed and amazed by this history of the 'world's friendliest border.' " - San Francisco Chronicle
"Every once in a while, leaders of the two countries that sit along the world's longest open border have eyed the territory on the other side as prime for an invasion. Lippert's fascinating and frequently funny book details the moments when the countries' relationship became a little strained, including details of Canada's 1921 plan for attacking the United States and a full reproduction of 'War Plan Red, ' the 1935 American scheme to storm Canada. The details of Canada's 1921 espionage excursion through New England alone are worth a purchase--find out what state's men were characterized as 'fat and lazy but pleasant and congenial!'' -- Mental Floss
"War Plan Red is a beautiful and fun book. It's a military history told in a snarky, fun, pop way, full of interesting historical stories and beautifully done. A fascinating exploration of little-known elements to Canada's longstanding relationship with our neighbor to the south." -- CBC Radio
"Terrifically fun." - Vox.com
