2018 marks the 75th anniversary of the start of Canada’s Italian Campaign of the Second World War waged from July 10, 1943, to February 4, 1945.
By the end of the Italian Campaign, more than 92,000 Canadians had played a part. Yet it remains relatively unheralded, overshadowed by the drama of D-Day. To commemorate the sacrifice made in Italy 75 years ago, Legion Magazine and Canada’s Ultimate Story present Military Moments | The Fight for Italy. Narrated by Canadian actor, comedian, musician and filmmaker Dan Aykroyd, the video explores critical Allied victories on Sicily and the Italian mainland which set the stage for the fight that would lead to the end of the war.
