"In the summer of 1943, a young Farley Mowat landed on the beaches of Sicily with the First Canadian Infantry division as part of the initial Allied assault on western Europe. For a year and a half his division fought its way up the Italian 'boot' in a series of savage and bloody battles, driving the German army slowly northwards. As (he) saw his comrades killed and wounded in battle, his courage and convictions were constantly tested. His spirit was sustained, in part, by his strong relationship with his parents, especially his father. Angus Mowat, a wounded veteran of the Great War, was only able to re-enlist for home service. His many letters to his son combined idealism and his belief in the power of the written word with an enormous zest for life and instinctive irreverence for authority. 'My Father's Son' begins where Farley Mowat's earlier book about his war experiences, 'And No Birds Sang', ended, recreating the later years of the Italian campaign with its devastating effects on the young men who bore the brunt of it." Book is Near Fine. Dust jacket minor edge wear, minor rubbing, small crease at top of both hinges, minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine.
