Response to Looking for Information on Cape Breton Highlanders in WW2

If you go to the site for "Legion Magazine", there is a Special Issue (magazine-sized) called "The Fight for Italy" which costs around $16. The CBHs spent some years there and took part in Operation Timberwolf. Remember that, in Italy, they became part of the 11th Canadian Infantry Brigade. The other two books which others have suggested are excellent, especially "The Breed of Manly Men", which, of course, was their slogan (but in Gaelic).
