This 1,000-page, 2-volume regimental history book, entitled “Montreal’s Cavalry – The History of the Royal Canadian Hussars”, describes the 208-year history of the Royal Canadian Hussars and the Montreal Cavalry units that preceded it. It describes every significant operation where Montreal-based cavalry soldiers served prior to 2020. It describes well-known historical events from the unique point of view of the cavalry soldier and, provides insight into the social and political history of Montréal, Québec and Canada. In addition to many interesting stories, the book includes 56 detailed maps, 27 uniform illustrations, numerous paintings by renowned war artists, a dozen vehicle drawings, and hundreds of photos depicting the unit over the years. It has numerous appendices documenting the unit’s uniforms, its battle honours, its honour roll, its medals and decorations, and the different insignias used over time.

The book, certainly one of the best regimental histories available in Canada, will be of great interest to current and former members of the unit and their families and friends. It will also be of great interest to collectors and readers who have a passion for military history.

The English version is available while the French version is planned for 2023 (advance order).
