Overview

A true-life saga of human drama, violence and tragedy, The Regiment is bestselling author Farley Mowat’s first-hand account of his experiences during World War II in the Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment. All the heroism – and the horror – of the “Hasty P’s” are relived in these pages: the gruelling months of training in Britain; the baptism by fire in Sicily, 1943; the determined struggle through rugged mountain terrain to the battlefields of northwest Europe.

As a platoon commander, and later as an intelligence officer, Mowat was an integral part of the Regiment’s action. He vividly portrays the events of the war with humour, compassion and a wealth of evocative detail. The Regiment is Farley Mowat at his best – incisive, stirring and altogether unforgettable.
