This review is from: Anzio: The Friction of War: The Friction of War - Italy and the Battle for Rome 1944 (Paperback)
This is a simply outstanding achievement for the author as he manages to make one realise th horror experienced by the men there and the problems in leadership which led to what can only be described as a bit of a farce. That is not to take ANYTHING away from the men who fought it as they died in droves trying to make the operation work.

This book is easily as good a Monte Cassino by Parker (excellent, in case you're wondering) and also gives the reader a very good conclusion but doesn't force the author's opinions on you as some do. It reaffirmed my belief that Mark Clark was a self-obsessed moron.

The most special section of the book for me, was the epilogue. I was moved, as evidentally, was the author.

Buy it. This is a MUST for your bookshelf.
