Item Details
Summary:

"Through Blood and Sweat takes readers on a 300-kilometre march in the footsteps taken by the soldiers of 1st Canadian Infantry Division in 1943. As part of Operation Husky 2013, a group of Canadians walked this route to honour the memory of the nation's soldiers who fought in Sicily seventy years earlier and whose sacrifice has been largely forgotten. Mark Zuehlke was one of the Operation Husky 2013 marchers. He uses this arduous task as a focal point for a contemplative look at the culture of remembrance and the experience of war."--Provided by publisher.
