Meticulously researched from personal diaries, military records, and interviews with veterans, Operation Husky dramatically retells the story of a campaign in which courage, skill, and sacrifice of some twenty thousand Canadians brought the nation its first army victory of World War II.

July 10, 1943: Aboard over two thousand ships—the largest armada in history—two great Allied Armies readied to invade Sicily. This was Operation Husky, the first step towards winning a toehold in fascist occupied Europe. Among the invaders were 20,000 troops serving in the 1st Canadian Infantry Division and 1st Canadian Tank Brigade—in their first combat experience. Over the next twenty-eight days, the Canadian and other Allied troops carved a path through rugged land despite fierce German opposition. Operation Husky is story of the young men who battled there, told as only Mark Zuehlke can tell it.
