Product description

Review

"I much admired David Stafford's previous book, Endgame 1945 and Mission Accomplished, an official history commissioned by the Cabinet Office, exhibits the same elements of a lucid, flowing narrative combined with acute observations about the varied personalities involved...The mission was something of which both Britons and Italians can be rightly proud and Stafford does it full justice" (Christopher Silvester Daily Express)

"Although this is an official history commissioned by the Cabinet Office, it is written with a light touch and Stafford is unafraid to give his own opinions... strong tensions, personal and political are skillfully navigated by Stafford...splendidly chronicled" (Raleigh Trevelyan Literary Review)

"An admirably lucid and carefully balanced account... ...official histories are rarely as absorbing as this" (Nigel Perrin Times Literary Supplement)

"A page-turning history" (Independent)

"[Stafford] offers readers a sound judgment of SOE's contribution to the liberation of Italy and a gripping account of Britain's secret war in Italy...Stafford vividly describes these missions with striking detail and telling quotes" (BBC History Magazine)

Book Description

Mission Accomplished provides the first ever complete and authoritative account of Britain's secret war in Italy during the Second World War.
