Ortona - The Canadian Battle - December 1943

Creator(s): Loyal Edmonton Regiment Museum

Beginning December 21st, 1943, troops from Canada fought a savage battle to oust German soldiers from the Italian coastal port of Ortona, on Italy's Adriatic coast. To put that struggle into context, the exhibit follows a Canadian unit through the preliminary stages of the war - forming in Edmonton, then spending frustratingly long years of training and waiting in Britain.
