Fifty years ago, on 10 July 1943, Canadian troops landed in Sicily. It was the first full-scale action of the Second World War involving Canadians (apart from Dieppe), and Peter Stursberg covered the action as a CBC war correspondent. He went on to cover the Italian campaign, the invasion of southern France, the liberation of the Netherlands, and the entry of the Allies into Berlin. The Sound of War is a highly personal account from a journalist who was on the front lines, observing the men in battle. It is an insider's account of what war was like on a day-to-day basis, in London, Algiers, Sicily, Italy, and northwestern Europe.
