Using first person accounts the author paints a compelling portrait of the nearly 93,000 Canadians who served in this campaign, more than quarter of which became casualties. These men and women faced inhospitable terrain, disease and a skilled enemy in a theatre, which was largely overshadowed by D-Day. The battles fought by Canadian units fill their regimental colours with battle honours serving in this almost forgotten campaign that they derisively labelled the 'The Spaghetti League'. With their bravery and perseverance, these D-Day Dodgers accomplished all that was asked of them, and wrote an honourable page in Canada's military history.

An interesting perspective on the Italian Campaign from the Canadian point of view * With first person accounts the author vividly portrays the many daunting tasks faced by the Canadians * Excellent colour maps and war art reproductions.
