OTD Livestream Battle Series: Ortona

This may be of interest, the description, quoted below, gives detail of some of the sources.
The second installment of the OTD Livestream Battle Series looks at the Battle of Ortona in December 1943. I will be discussing the fighting that led to the town particularly at the Moro River and the Gully, the intense urban combat in the streets, and the less discussed aftermath. The fighting pitted the German 1st Parachute Division against the 1st Canadian Infantry Division.
