This is a well told story, complex and unsettling, and Casemate have picked a rich subject, which has been concealed and misrepresented even in Italy. * Military Modelcraft International *
When Germany's Sixth Army advanced to Stalingrad in 1942, its long-extended flanks were mainly held by its allied armies-the Romanians, Hungarians, and Italians. But as history tells us, these flanks quickly caved in before the massive Soviet counter-offensive which commenced that November, dooming the Germans to their first catastrophe of the war. However, the historical record also makes clear that one allied unit held out to the very end, fighting to stem the tide-the Italian Alpine Corps. * *
Historian Hamilton tells their story through interviews with survivors, extensive historical records and archival photos. * Italian America *
With the Italian army often the butt of cruel jokes, this books sets at least one of the records straight. Hope Hamilton's account of the Italian Eighth Army on the Steppes of central Asia is compelling and informative. * www.booksmonthly. *
Raw courage and endurance blend with human suffering, desperation and altruism in the epic saga of this withdrawal from the Don lines, including the demise of thousands and survival of the few * World War II Re-enactors Magazine *
This a useful addition to the literature on the Eastern Front, giving an interesting picture of an army normally only mentioned in foot notes. * *
