Inside the first Allied attack
On July 10, 1943, the largest amphibious invasion ever mounted took place, larger even than the Normandy invasion eleven months later: 160,000 American, British, and Canadian troops came ashore or were parachuted onto Sicily. Yet, despite its importance, very little has been written about the 38-day Battle for Sicily.
Based on his own battlefield studies in Sicily and on new research, James Holland’s Sicily ’43 offers a vital new perspective on a major turning point in the war. The characters involved—Generals George Patton and Bernard Montgomery among others—were as colorful as the fighting was brutal. A powerful and dramatic account by a master military historian, Sicily ’43 fills a serious gap in the narrative history of WWII.
