About the Author

Edwin P. Hoyt, a historian and World War II veteran, has written more than one hundred books.


"This sharp-edged, operationally focused narrative, aimed at a general audience, demonstrates the difficulties the Allies faced during the World War II Italian campaign while arguing strongly that the campaign itself was unnecessary, the result of confused strategic planning." -- Dennis Showalter
