Abstract:

"Although it has been overshadowed by other events of the Second World War, Canada's role in the Italian Campaign, from 1943 to 1945, was significant. Canadian forces played a major role in this campaign, whose goal was to open a second front in order to ease the pressure on Russian forces in the east. Canada fought under British command alongside British and American units, but our soldiers saw some of the fiercest fighting and achieved glory many times, including at the Battle of Ortona, one of Canada's greatest military accomplishments." "This pictorial history examines the Italian Campaign from the view of the soldiers serving there. Regiments represented in interviews in this book include the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, the Perth Regiment, the Governor General's Horse Guards, the Ontario Regiment, the 48th highlanders, the Calgary Regiment, the Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment, and the Royal Canadian Dragoons, along with the Royal Canadian Navy."--Jacket.
