Although it has been overshadowed by other events of the Second World War, Canada’s role in the Italian Campaign was significant and this pictorial history examines the events from the viewpoint of the soldier serving on the ground who were attached to a variety of regiments. 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.

Hell and High Water examines the Italian Campaign from the point of view of the soldiers there. Regiments represented in interviews in this book include the Princess Patricia’s 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.
With a foreword by Colonel Sydney Frost.
