It was an era of hope, heroism, and upheaval, a time of tragedy and unexpected humor. Now, through an extraordinary series of original letters exchanged with his parents, along with a connecting narrative, Farley Mowat brings those pivotal World War II years back to life, re-creating his own experiences as a member of the First Canadian Infantry—a division that fought its way up the Italian "boot" in a series of savage and bloody battles.

This continuation of the story related in And No Birds Sang is perhaps Farley Mowat's most personal work to date. My Father's Son is not only a remarkable evocation of a bygone era of innocence and idealism but also a testament to family loyalty and affection—a record of the enduring love between a father and a son.
