Product description

Review

"[An] exemplary, heartbreaking book." -"The Washington Post" "Monte Cassino [was] perhaps the most interesting campaign of all. . . . [A] moving and well-researched book." --"The Economist" "Few people today realize that British and American soldiers fought in a battle that compares to Stalingrad for human suffering." Monte Cassino" is a fitting tribute: an important and beautifully written book, told with real understanding and pathos." -"Daily Telegraph" "One of the true epics of infantry war in World War II.... A gripping story of incompetence, courage, cowardice and almost every other human emotion that war can excite." -"Irish Independent" "Deeply felt. . . . A fine book on a heartbreaking tragedy." -"Irish Times" "An excellent account of the hardest fighting carried out by the Western allies." -"The Independent on Sunday" "Good accounts have been written of the battle before, but none has managed to convey the sheer awfulness of fighting with quite the same success. . . . Parker has produced a deeply moving, richly detailed, and fast-paced account of the most infamous British battle of the Second World War." -"Sunday Telegraph" "A careful reconstruction of the Allied campaign. . . . An accomplished study." -"Kirkus Reviews" "Parker captures the heroism, horror, and sheer brutality of a battle that rivals Stalingrad for savagery. . . . An outstanding chronicle illustrating both valor and futility." -"Booklist" "Parker captures the horrific nature of the combat. . . . An oustanding example of military history, Parkers' study is of the same caliber as John Ellis's masterpiece, Cassion: The Hollow Victory, and should be in every World War IIcollection." -"Library Journal"

Book Description
