Mussolini's Island

BookBucks Review and collect 30 points.
In July 1943, the Allies launched their first assault against the "Fortress Europe" which Hitler thought invincible. MUSSOLINI'S ISLAND captures for the first time the full horror and glory, the fear and the foul-ups of one of the least known but most dramatic and controversial battles of World War II. MUSSOLINI'S ISLAND is not a conventional military history. It tells the story of otherwise faceless men and women -- American and Italian soldiers, a British Navy officer, and a Spitfire pilot - whose lives and loves are changed by the choices of Hitler and Mussolini, and of two star commanders locked in a personal rivalry: old "blood and guts" Patton and Montgomery, the best-known British Army commander of World War II.
