Book Review – Despatches From The Front, The War in Italy 1943-1944



Another addition to the excellent range of primary source information drawn from a careful selection of despatches. The text is very well supported by an interesting photo plate section and the authors/editors are to be commended for producing a work that provides a direct insight into the thoughts, fears, beliefs and actions of senior commanders in what was a very important theatre of operations.

This book provides a unique set of views from the commanders involved in the Italian Campaign. Essential reading for military history enthusiasts, but also a fascinatingly different set of insights for those wishing to develop their knowledge and appreciation of WWII.
