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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, and informative I really enjoyed this read. i found that the style was excelent because Mark used the facts research while also adding quotes from a number of diaries to give it that "personal account" feel to the evolution of the Campaign. The book takes you from the very beginning of the Sicilian Campaign - from the reason why they wanted to create this campaign, and why Canada was involved - through the sruggles of planning this invasion, to the actualy D-Day, to the the final days and the whole invation.
