Beyond every battle there is a family story. Find yours at

A military historian and an investigative filmmaker travel around the world in search of lost war remnants and forgotten artifacts, revealing untold stories about what they find on the battlefield or in museum collections. Through their investigation and family history research, they recount the human side of these stories, and reunite family members with these found objects.

In "The Scars of Battle" our hosts explore the front lines of World War II in Italy. There they meet a collector with a very personal item mistakenly left behind by a Canadian soldier. The team is able to reunite the family with this precious artifact and are reminded about the devastating impact war has on soldiers and their families.
