Description
The year before the second front was opened at the D-Day landings in Normandy in 1944, the Allies waged a campaign against the Third Reich in Sicily and Italy—an assault marked by argument and dissent from beginning to end. Winston Churchill favored scrapping the Normandy invasion while focusing on Europe's "soft underbelly," while the Americans rejected any plan that relied solely on a southern option. Edwin Hoyt's story of the ferocious, drawn-out campaign that began with the invasion of Sicily (and continued with the landings at Salerno and Anzio and the destruction of Monte Cassino) finds this costly effort became a "backwater war" after the Allies invaded France.
