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

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

Book Description: St Martin s Press, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 210 x 166 mm. Brand New Book. NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Majestic. Atkinson s achievement is to marry prodigious research with a superbly organized narrative and then to overlay the whole with writing as powerful and elegant as any great narrative of war. -- The Wall Street Journal In An Army at Dawn --winner of the Pulitzer Prize--Rick Atkinson provided an authoritative history of the Allied triumph in North Africa during World War II. Now, in The Day of Battle, he follows the strengthening American and British armies as they invade Sicily in July 1943 and then, mile by bloody mile, fight their way north toward Rome. The decision to invade the so-called soft underbelly of Europe was controversial, but once under way, the commitment to liberate Italy from the Nazis never wavered. The battles at Salerno, Anzio, the Rapido River, and Monte Cassino were particularly lethal, yet as the months passed, the Allied forces continued to drive the Germans up the Italian peninsula. And with the liberation of Rome in June 1944, ultimate victory at last began to seem inevitable.Drawing on a wide array of primary source material, written with great drama and flair, The Day of Battle is a masterly account of one of history s most compelling military campaigns.

Book Description: Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. A triumph of narrative history, elegantly written, thick with unforgettable description and rooted in the sight and sounds of battle. The New York TimesIn An Army at Dawnwinner of the Pulitzer PrizeRick Atkinson provided a dramatic and authoritative history of the Allied triumph in North Africa. Now, in The Day of Battle, he follows the strengthening American and British armies as they invade Sicily in July 1943 and then, mile by bloody mile, fight their way north toward Rome. The Italian campaigns outcome was never certain; in fact, Roosevelt, Churchill, and their military advisers engaged in heated debate about whether an invasion of the so-called soft underbelly of Europe was even a good idea. But once under way, the commitment to liberate Italy from the Nazis never wavered, despite the agonizingly high price. The battles at Salerno, Anzio, and Monte Cassino were particularly difficult and lethal, yet as the months passed, the Allied forces continued to drive the Germans up the Italian peninsula. Led by Lieutenant General Mark Clark, one of the wars most complex and controversial commanders, American officers and soldiers became increasingly determined and proficient. And with the liberation of Rome in June 1944, ultimate victory at last began to seem inevitable. Drawing on a wide array of primary source material, written with great drama and flair, this is narrative history of the first rank. With The Day of Battle, Atkinson has once again given us the definitive account of one of historys most compelling military campaigns. This item ships from multiple locations.
