The young second lieutenant soon earned the trust of the soldiers under his command, and was known to bend army rules to secure a stout drink, or find warm -- if nonregulation -- clothing. But when Mowat and his regiment engaged with elite German forces in the mountains of Sicily, the optimism of their early days as soldiers was replaced by despair. With a naturalist's eyes and ears, Mowat takes in the full dark depths of war; his moving account of military service, and the friends he left behind, is also a plea for peace.Hide synopsis

An excellent book. I don't understand why this book isn't as widely heralded as his more famous works. Farley Mowat is a Canadian treasure and a superb author, and this book demonstrates his immense worth as well as any.
