The Liri Valley: Canada's World War II Breakthrough to Rome by Mark Zuehlke this is a detailed soldier's eye view account of the breaking of the German defensive system in Italy by the Canadiens. Zuehlke has written several books on Canadian campaigns in WWII. He is to be commended for finding witnesses and bringing to light sources that have never been used. The only weakness here is that the account of the strategic background is confused at times.
