Synopsis: In 1665 the Carignan-Salières Regiment was sent to Canada by King Louis XIV to quell the Iroquois, whose attacks were strangling the colony's fur-based economy and threatening to destroy its tiny settlements. In the course of its three-year stay in Canada, the regiment established a period of relative peace that allowed the French to consolidate their foothold on the north shore of the St Lawrence, establish new settlements across the river, and rebuild the economy to its former prosperity. Promoted by Abbé Lionel Groulx as a body of chosen men sent to do God's work, the regiment came to be viewed as an elite corps of Catholic crusaders. In The Good Regiment Jack Verney sets the record straight, revealing that the Carignan-Salières Regiment was not a group of saintly knights but caroused, womanized, and gambled in off hours just like any other infantry regiment.

Review: "A rousing good read ... The Carignan-Salières are no longer tools of historians to perpetuate a 'golden haze' of legend, but real soldiers with their own page of history." Major Ian McCulloch, The Beaver "Le régiment de Carignan-Salières représente un pilier de la glorieuse légende des origines du Canada ... Ce livre vaut surtout par une analyse neuve et scrupuleuse et un réel effort pour replacer dans la mentalité du temps à la fois le comportement des soldats et les réactions des populations." André Corvisier, Revue française d'histoire d'outre-mer "An entertaining chronicle of the only French regiment to serve in Canada in the 1600s." Legion "The Good Regiment is an important study capable of satisfying academics and people with a general interest in Canadian military history." Martin L. Nicolai, Canadian Historical Review
