This is the brutal retelling of the Italian campaign. If you can stomach the vivid reality of war, this book will change your ideas about what WWII really was for the men fighting in Italy. Another marvelous piece of history and prose from Mr. Atkinson.
This story's contrast of devastation and hope is best heard rather than read. McCarthy's style -- trochaic and brutally honest -- is easier to follow in this audio version than in the book. Probably his finest work to date, a life-changing novel.
The African campaign comes to life in amazing detail with Atkinson's brutally honest retelling of the men and times that made the US Army. Brilliant even if you are not a WWII buff.
