"In this, the third volume of Colonel Dupuy's all-inclusive military history of World War II, the author re-creates the great African campaigns and the Allied landings in Sicily and Italy that spelled the end of Mussolini's empire and Hitler's Third Reich. "It was in the rocky and desolate region known as the Western Desert, stretching for hundreds of miles between Libya and Egypt, that the great drama was enacted by some of the most brilliant military leaders of this century. It was a brave and desperate battle between brave and desperate foes. And when it was ended, the way was open for the equally brave but less spectacular Allied advance up through Italy into Hitler's already crumbling realm. "This is an exciting description of an important moment in history, seen through the eyes of a true historian who describes the important military events of the war without emotional or political bias."
