His many awards include Pulitzer Prizes for journalism and history. He lives in Washington, D.C. Klappentext 'A triumph of narrative history, elegantly written, thick with unforgettable description and rooted in the sight and sounds of battle' William Grimes, New York Times Dramatic and authoritative, The Day of Battle continues where the Pulitzer Prize-winning An Army at Dawn left off, this time following the strengthening Allied armies as they invade Sicily in July 1943 and then fight their way north, mile by bloody mile towards Rome. Once underway, the commitment to liberate Italy from the Nazis never wavered, despite the agonizingly high price, and as the months passed the Allied forces continued to drive the Germans up the Italian peninsula. With the liberation of Rome in June 1944, victory - at last - began to seem inevitable. 'Vivid and humane, it is deeply researched' Raleigh Trevelyan, Literary Review 'A very fine book . . . Anyone who devoured An Army at Dawn with relish will be delighted with Atkinson's account of the Sicilian and Italian campaign' New York Times Book Review The second volume of Rick Atkinson's monumental trilogy about the Liberation of Europe in the Second World War. Zusammenfassung The second volume of Rick Atkinson's monumental trilogy about the Liberation of Europe in the Second World War.
