OTTAWA, March 20 /CNW Telbec/ - War Amps CEO Cliff Chadderton is getting
Up Close and Personal in a newly-released book and documentary.
Recently Mr. Chadderton had the privilege of conducting a four-hour
interview with Veterans Affairs Canada for its Heroes Remember project. The
resulting material proved to be a fitting follow-up to his successful 2005
memoir, Excuse Us! Herr Schicklgruber, a gut-wrenching account of some
40 soldiers from the Royal Winnipeg Rifles with whom he served in
World War II.
Cliff Chadderton: Up Close and Personal is available in book form, which
contains the full interview transcript, or as a one-hour documentary featuring
interview highlights and personal and archival footage. In both, he delves
deeper into his personal story - his childhood, his pre-war pursuits and his
war years. He tells of life and death events during the Normandy invasion, his
"worst day" at a place called Soulangy and the defining moment during the
Battle for the Scheldt that cost him his leg.
The documentary will be distributed to regular, specialty and community
channels across Canada.
A Companion in the Order of Canada, Mr. Chadderton has never let the loss
of his leg hinder him. In fact, it has made him a beacon of hope to many, and
has given him the opportunity to work for the needs and benefits of Canadian
amputees and veterans as CEO of The War Amps and Chairman of the National
Council of Veteran Associations in Canada.
Part of The War Amps Military Heritage Series, Cliff Chadderton: Up Close
and Personal is available at a cost recovery price of $10 for the book, $12
for the documentary (DVD or VHS) or a special price of $15 for both. To order,
please use E-ZEE ACCESS: call toll-free 1 800 250-3030 or visit
