Calgary’s Infantry Regiment is a comprehensive history of the Calgary Highlanders on the occasion of the regiment’s 100 years of service under that name. This richly illustrated volume surveys the regiment’s history dating back to the creation of the 103rd Regiment, Calgary Rifles in 1910 and includes glimpses of Calgary’s infantry units in the First World War (including the 10th, 56th and 82nd Battalions); the creation of Calgary’s own kilted regiment in 1924; and the service of the Calgary Highlanders in the Second World War, peacekeeping and NATO missions around the world, and the war in Afghanistan.

Michael Dorosh provides a unique study of the regiment’s culture — combining text, photos, maps, original works of art, song lyrics and poetry. He highlights the regiment’s reputation for valour and endurance, as well as the exceptional service in wartime for which the Highlanders have been rewarded with the honorary distinction of the oak leaf shoulder badge and the Canadian Forces Unit Commendation.
