During World War II, Farley Mowat fought in Italy and Sicily with the Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment. And No Birds Sang is the gripping eyewitness account of a young man in combat, detailing everything from how he lost his virginity to his growing disenchantment with war. Heard in the author's own voice, And No Birds Sang showcases both Mowat's irrepressible urge to tell a good story and the serious purpose behind it.
"If hearing a tale in the author's own voice is what creates some of the magic for you, then Farley Mowat's slightly gravelly, animated reading of his novel And No Birds Sang will make an impression. Farley will draw you deeply into the tale." — Atlantic Books Today
