Atkinson surpasses his Pulitzer winning An Army at Dawn in this empathetic, perceptive analysis of the second stage in the U.S Army s grassroots development from well intentioned amateurs to the most formidable fighting force of World War II The battles in Sicily and Italy developed the combat effectiveness and the emotional hardness of a U.S Army increasingly constrained to bear the brunt of the Western allies war effort, he argues Demanding terrain, harsh climate and a formidable opponent confirmed the lesson of North Africa the only way home was through the Germans kill or be killed Atkinson is pitilessly accurate demonstrating the errors and misjudgments of senior officers, Field Marshal Sir Harold Alexander, Gen Mark Clark and their subordinates commanding corps and divisions The price was paid in blood by the men at the sharp end British and French, Indians and North Africansabove all, Americans All that remained of the crew of one burned out tank were the fillings of their teeth, for one example The Mediterranean campaign is frequently dismissed by soldiers and scholars as a distraction from the essential objective of invading northern Europe Atkinson makes a convincing case that it played a decisive role in breaking German power, forcing the Wehrmacht onto a defensive it could never abandon Oct 2 Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.
