Ortona: Canada's Epic World War II Battle by Mark Zuehlke

Ortona: Canada's Epic World War II Battle

by Mark Zuehlke

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
14 Hrs. 36 Min.


In one furious week of fighting in December 1943, the First Canadian Infantry Division took Ortona, Italy, from elite German paratroopers ordered to hold the medieval port at all costs. When the battle was over, the Canadians emerged victorious despite heavy losses. Over 2,500 Canadians died or were wounded there. Military historian Mark Zuehlke blends reminiscences of the Canadians, Germans, and Italians who were there together with a blow-by-blow account of the fighting to create a harrowing, ultimately hopeful rendering of one of World War II's defining moments.
