From the dust jacket: "The capture of Rome on June 4, 1944, was the climax of Operation 'Diadem, ' the Allies greatest single triumph of the Italian campaign. Not only were the German 10th and 14th Armies routed, but, even more important, Alexander achieved the basic aim of holding as many as 27 German divisions away from 'Overlord, ' the Allied landing in Normandy. Ironically, it was its very success that resulted in 'Diadem's' being overshadowed by the cross-Channel operation. Yet, the battle for Rome was one of the most outstanding strategic and tactical successes of the Second World War. . . . The drama of the campaign is highlighted by the action photographs and the author's numerous sketch maps. " EDG_127 ; 224 pages. N° de réf. du libraire 22935
