Mark Zuehlke is Canada’s leading writer of popular history. Holding Juno won the City of Victoria Butler Book Prize in 2006, and The Cinderella Campaign was a finalist for the John W. Dafoe Book Prize in 2018. In 2014, Zuehlke won the prestigious Governor General’s History Award for Popular Media, also known as the Pierre Berton Award. What began in 2006 as an idea to write a book about this period blossomed into inspiration. Zuehlke was first invited to give a talk on these battles in 2014 and his research revealed “countless stories of individual courage and sacrifice during fierce battles fought in a complex landscape criss-crossed by myriad rivers and canals.” With his trademark “you are there” style, Zuehlke shines a light on this forgotten chapter of the war in the thirteenth installment of the bestselling Canadian Battle Series, bringing his account of Canada’s World War II experience in Italy to a satisfying conclusion. Admission includes a draw ticket to win a copy of The River Battles. Additional books will be available for purchase at the event.
