Battle of Sicily by Samuel W. Mitcham

Book Description

On July 10, 1943, American, British, and Canadian forces launched a massive amphibious and airborne assault on Sicily. After a five-week campaign--during which American Gen. George Patton and British Gen. Bernard Montgomery conducted their famous race to Messina--Italian dictator Benito Mussolini had been deposed, and the island lay in Allied hands. Yet total victory eluded them. With only four divisions, the Germans held off the invaders for thirty-eight days and then escaped, dooming the Allies to a prolonged battle of attrition for Italy.

Blitzkreig No Longer by Samuel W. Mitcham Blitzkreig No Longer, Hardback (May 2010)

A pivotal year of WWII through German eyes.

Blitzkrieg No Longer by Samuel W. Mitcham Blitzkrieg No Longer, Hardback (December 2009)

After a crushing loss at Stalingrad, the German war machine regrouped in early 1943 to stave off total defeat, but it could not stem the rising Allied tide. In the Mediterranean, Rommel's early successes in Africa were erased by the surrender of Tunisia, and German forces barely escaped Sicily before the Allies seized the island.
