Review:

'[An] empathetic, perceptive analysis....Atkinson makes a convincing case that [the Mediterranean campaign] played a decisive role in breaking German power...."

Publishers Weekly, 07/30/2007

Review:

"[THE DAY OF BATTLE] chronicles, with all the verve, perception, and insight for which [Rick Atkinson] has become celebrated, the painful advance of Allied forces from the beaches of Sicily to the grand piazzas of Rome."

Max Hastings, New York Review of Books, 04/03/2008

Book Description: SIMON SCHUSTER AUDIO, United States, 2007. CD-Audio. Book Condition: New. Abridged. 153 x 133 mm. Brand New. THE HARROWING STORY OF ONE OF HISTORY S MOST COMPELLING MILITARY CAMPAIGNS In An Army at Dawn -- winner of the Pulitzer Prize -- Rick Atkinson provided a dramatic and authoritative history of the Allied triumph in North Africa. Now, in The Day of Battle, he follows the American and British armies as they invade Sicily in July 1943, attack Italy two months later, and then fight their way, mile by bloody mile, north toward Rome. The Italian campaign s outcome was never certain; in fact, President Roosevelt, Prime Minister Churchill and their military advisors bitterly debated whether an invasion of the so-called soft underbelly of Europe was even wise. But once underway, the commitment to liberate Italy from the Nazis never wavered, despite the agonizing price. The battles at Salerno, Anzio, the Rapido River, and Cassino were particularly ferocious and lethal, yet as the months passed, the Allied forces continued to drive the Germans up the Italian peninsula. Led by Lieutenant General Mark W. Clark, among the war s most complex and controversial commanders, American troops became increasingly determined and proficient. With the liberation of Rome in June 1944, ultimate victory in Europe at last began to seem inevitable. Drawing on extensive new material from a wide array of primary sources, and written with great drama and flair, The Day of Battle is narrative history of the first rank.
