9780002007344: Fighting Canadians: Our Regimental History from New France to Afghanistan

InThe Fighting Canadians, David J. Bercuson tells Canadian history through the eyes, ears and colours of Canadian regiments. From the 17th century, when the "Good Regiment," the Carignan-salières, fought the Mohawks at Courcelles, to the Newfoundland Regiment's valiant but brutal stand at Beaumont-Hamel in the Battle of the somme, from the Winnipeg Grenadiers' engagement with the Japanese in the Battle of Hong Kong to the Princess Patricias' trial by fire in the war in Afghanistan, Bercuson tells the story of brave men and women at war.

The Fighting Canadiansis a celebration of and a testament to the centuries-old tradition that lives on to this day, a venerable system that those now fighting in Afghanistan depend upon as they, too, face a terrible but necessary task.
