Beschreibung:

In An Army at Dawn - winner of the Pulitzer Prize - Rick Atkinson provided a dramatic and authoritative history of the Allied triumph in North Africa. Now, in The Day of the Battle, he follows the strengthening American and British armies as they invade Sicily in July 1943 and then, mile by bloody mile, fight their way north.The Italian campaign's outcome was never certain; in fact, Roosevelt, Churchill and their military advisors engaged in heated debate about whether an invasion of the so-called soft underbelly of Europe was even a good idea. But once underway, the commitment to liberate Italy from the Nazis never wavered, despite the agonizingly high price. The battles at Salerno, Anzio, and Monte Cassino were particularly difficult and lethal, yet as the months passed, the Allied forces continued to push the Germans up the Italian peninsula. And with the liberation of Rome in June 1944, ultimate victory at last began to seem inevitable.Drawing on an astonishing array of primary source material, written with great drama and flair, this is narrative history of the first rank.
A triumph of narrative history, elegantly written, thick with unforgettable description and rooted in the sight and sounds of battle' William Grimes, New York Times Dramatic and authoritative, The Day of Battle continues where the Pulitzer Prize-winning An Army at Dawn left off, this time following the strengthening Allied armies as they invade Sicily in July 1943 and then fight their way north, mile by bloody mile towards Rome. Once underway, the commitment to liberate Italy from the Nazis never wavered, despite the agonizingly high price, and as the months passed the Allied forces continued to drive the Germans up the Italian peninsula. With the liberation of Rome in June 1944, victory - at last - began to seem inevitable. 'Vivid and humane, it is deeply researched' Raleigh Trevelyan, Literary Review 'A very fine book . . . Anyone who devoured An Army at Dawn with relish will be delighted with Atkinson's account of the Sicilian and Italian campaign' New York Times Book Review
