Anzio by Lloyd Clark,
This review is from: Anzio: The Friction of War: The Friction of War - Italy and the Battle for Rome 1944 (Paperback)
My curiosity into the Anzio landings was raised after a visit to Anzio to see my father's grave, but I was frustrated by the lack of information about the landing and subsequent battles that took place. Lloyd Clark's book is full of in depth information and gives an insight into the characters involved in the ballsups they perpetrated, it also portrays the the horrors and suffering the men had to endure and raises the question as to whether the landing should have taken place at all or whether it could have been successful under different (or better) command. This book makes for good reading regardless of whether you have a personal interest or just a general interest in world war two.
