"This is the gripping story of how one man's half-century of service and devotion helped build and develop the Hastings & Prince Edward Regiment; and how that regiment played a vital role in Canada's efforts during the Second World War. Angus Duffy was Regimental Sergeant-Major during the Second World War; commanding officer from 1958 to 1962, and Honorary Colonel from 1976 to 1981, and a man revered and respected for his tough but humane approach to leadership, and undying belief that the common foot soldier was more important than the commissioned officer. (A) detailed, and often touching look at the impact one man had on his regiment, and the incredible sacrifice of those men." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very minor wear at top of rear hinge area.
