Rate this:
On July 10, 1943, two great Allied armadas of over 2,000 ships readied to invade Sicily. This was Operation Husky, the first step toward winning a toehold in fascist-occupied Europe. Among the invaders were 20,000 Canadian troops serving in the First Canadian Infantry Division and First Canadian Tank Brigade -- in their first combat experience. Over the next 28 days, the Allied troops carved a path through the rugged land, despite fierce German opposition. Drawing on firsthand accounts of veterans and official military records, Operation Husky offers a gripping, meticulous account of this seminal operation and the young men who fought, died, and survived it.

If you have read and liked Mark Zuehlke's other histories, you will like this, mixing the grand strategic overview with personal remembrances. In fact it is good that he has made this effort, as the last WW2 veterans are dying off, so some of the personal details are now preserved forever.
