Summary
"In this new examination of the Mediterranean war, Barbara Brooks Tomblin details the planning and execution of each major Allied attack on what Winston Churchill dubbed "the soft underbelly of Europe." Operating under the leadership of General Dwight D. Eisenhower, Admiral Andrew B. Cunningham, Admiral H. Kent Hewitt, and others, Allied forces achieved the first of their objectives in November 1942 by establishing a presence along the North African shore. In subsequent missions, the Allies seized the island of Sicily, landed on mainland Italy at Salerno and Anzio, and brought in army ashore on the coast of southern France."--Jacket
