about this item

Across the mountains and plains of northern Italy, from autumn 1944 to the end of World War II, more than 100,000 American troops spearheaded a vast multinational effort to break a string of German fortifications codenamed The Gothic Line. Among the last battles of the war, they were also the first of the Cold War as the Allies hurried north hoping to keep territory out of the hands of the advancing Red Army.

Through the eyes of thirteen men and women from seven different nations, Christian Jennings gives readers an unprecedented look inside this unsung but highly significant campaign. Just like Stephen Ambrose'sBand of Brothers, Jennings vividly recounts the acts of valor performed by these courageous young soldiers as they fought uphill against overwhelming odds, even as many faced discrimination from their allies and superiors.

Lie in wait with a troop of Canadian fur trappers turned snipers. Creep along treacherous mountain paths with a company of Indian warriors as they assault fortified positions armed with only rifles. Learn to fear a one-armed SS-Major guilty of some of the most atrocious war-crimes in the European theater.

All these stories and more pack the pages of this faced-paced and action-heavy history, taking readers inside one of the most important, and least discussed, campaigns of World War II.
