Description
 
Follows the strengthening American and British armies as they invade Sicily in July 1943 and then fight their way north toward Rome. The decision to invade the “soft underbelly” of Europe was controversial, but, once under way, the commitment to liberate Italy from the Nazis never wavered. The battles at Salerno, Anzio, the Rapido River, and Monte Cassino were particularly lethal, yet as the months passed, the Allied forces, led by Lt. Gen. Mark Clark, continued to drive the Germans up the Italian peninsula. And, with the liberation of Rome in June 1944, ultimate victory seemed inevitable. Written with great drama and flair, this is a masterly account of one of history’s most compelling military campaigns. Maps and photos. N.Y. Times bestseller.
