In 1953 Farley Mowat and his wife travelled from London to Italy in a claret-colored Hillman convertible, revisiting the sites that Mowat had first seen as an infantryman during the nightmare of World War II. What he found was a land that was—after so many years of misery, tragedy, and destruction—overwhelmingly and energetically embracing life, nature, and hope. He met former French resistance fighters, battle-scarred veterans, and ordinary men and women who told him the stories only inhabitants of a war zone can tell: stories of the evils of war and the courage, sacrifice, and nature of human endurance. Aftermath: Travels in a Post-War World is vintage Mowat: powerful, moving, and unfailingly entertaining.
