Info from LAC
For an easy-to-read overview of the unit’s activities, we recommend starting with Published Histories. These books are often called “regimental histories.” They cover the history and activities of the unit. The level of detail varies for each history. Some books include a variety of information such as pictures, maps, lists of unit members, and quotes from unit members.
The Advantages of Published Histories:
- easier to read than War Diaries
- contain a variety of information
- can usually be sent to your local library via interlibrary loan*
You can search for these on our Library Search database by using the unit’s name.
