About the Book



The Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment (the Hasty Ps) was Canada's most decorated regiment in the Second World War. In The Regiment, Farley Mowat, famed novelist and member of the regiment, movingly recounts the story of the Hasty Ps, telling the story of his fellow soldiers and their vital role in the Allied conquest of Italy.



Book Synopsis



The story of an astonishing band of Canadian soldiers and their part in the Allied victory in Italy.

The Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment (the Hasty Ps) was Canada's most decorated regiment in the Second World War, winning thirty-one battle honours. Famed for their role in the Allied invasion of Sicily and the conquest of Italy, for six years the members of the regiment suffered brutal conditions, fighting bravely in the face of fierce opposition from the enemy, and ultimately triumphing.

In The Regiment (originally published in 1955), Farley Mowat, famed Canadian fiction writer and regiment member, tells the story of the Hasty Ps, from their recruitment in September 1939 until the end of the war. Mowat was a second lieutenant and platoon leader with the regiment, and writes movingly of the great suffering his fellow soldiers endured, their bravery in battle, and the lasting friendships he forged as a member of the group.
