197 pp + 4 pp of colour maps, 9" H. Colour plates, b&w portraits. "In 1943, Charles Comfort was sent into battle to make a painter's record of the Canadian army's fight against the Germans on the Italian peninsula. (This) is his account of that fight. Enduring the shellfire, the mud, and the fatigue of battle, Comfort watches war being waged amidst the treasures of centuries of Italian art and culture. From the horrors of Ortona to the jubliant liberation of Rome, (this book) gives us a view of the war unlike any other - the vivid and penetrating view of a soldier armed not just with a rifle but with a paintbrush - and a pen. Originally published in 1956, this new edition features a revised text and 33 colour reproductions of Comfort's wartime paintings, many of which have never before been displayed in public." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - clean and bright.
