    These men these comrades to whom I owe so much And don t we all.With what great love and respect Mowat relates the men that served this regiment both before and during the war Peace is a good thing, and yet it is a bitter truth that peace does not live long in our times During the decades after the Armistice of 1918, there were few men who recognised this truth Hating war with a depth of understanding born of a bloody experience, these men alone were not deluded Knowing was for what it was foresaw the day when they, their sons and grandsons too perhaps, must need do out again to battle that unborn generations might survive I am not surprised that this book is required reading on military reading lists Military books are not my usual genre and this slowed me down but Mowat s obvious love and respect of those he served with and his eloquence as a writer shone through.This is not a book I would read in entirety again but portions of it at least should be reading material in school to remind us all of those who bravely gave for those of us who came after.

    This is a very different book from Mowat s others, part military history and part nostalgic memoir although the author hardly appears at all in this narrative of the regiment in which he served for six years the bulk of the book recounts Mowat s Canadian regiment s campaigns and battles in Italy over three years as it fought across Sicily and up the Italian Peninsula from the tip of the toe to north of Ravenna.

    Read this as we travelled through Italy, which was wholly appropriate given that s where it s set This is an invaluable book Mowat combines his story telling gift with his first person experiences in Italy during the Second World War and delivers a potent memoir and record of Canadian service in that theatre.

    A harrowing tale of World War II

    Interesting enough if you re into this sort of thing and has a few high points, but on the whole this book lacks the Mowat spark
