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.

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
