Completely absorbing account of this very complicated time in Italian history. Katz provides new sources and new information concerning many events and decisions. It is wonderful to be able to read about the brave efforts of individuals in Rome and Italy.

somewhat interesting book on a little known phase of the Italian Campaign.

We all know that Clark was hopeless, and now we find Lucas on the beach of Anzio sitting there like McClellan in Virginia because he "dosen't have enough troops!"

and okay he only had two divisions but he sat there until the Germans had built a strong force to hold them in.

anyway the Pope was a rat and ran a rat line. The partisans were going to fight but didn't and the SS killed lots of people including 1,000 Jews.

oh well.
