The Italian Campaign

The Italian Campaign was an important military effort for Canada during the Second World War. More than 93,000 Canadians, along with their allies from Great Britain, France and the United States, played a vital role. As they pushed from the south to the north of Italy over a 20-month period, Canadians faced difficult battles against some of the German army's best troops. Canadian casualties in the Italian Campaign totalled more than 26,000, nearly 6,000 of which were fatal.
