Military history as it should be written.Easy to read with interesting anecdotes showing the human aspect of war without sacrificing the military detail.I first became aware of Rick Atkinson when I purchased Crusade(about the first Gulf war). From then on I have looked forward to all his books especially his magnificent trilogy of Americans fighting in the European theatre of world war 2.
This is the final part of this masterful narrative .Anyone interested in this area of WW2 combat should have a copy of this in their collection
The first part of the trilogy is The Army at Dawn (North Africa).The second The Day of Battle( Italian campaign) followed by this book.

Well written, interesting and captures the spirit of what actually goes on in an Army given all the soldier personalities in play; with the addition of numerous politicos

This book is absurdly good. He has a gift for writing and a great ability to portray events with pathos and subtlety. Full of interesting information and detail. Covers many areas about which I knew little

My only worry is that now I have finished the trilogy I don't know what to read.

Waited two years for Rick Atkinson to complete the trilogy, well worth the wait, fantastic price and the usual super service from Amazon, what would we do without you
