« back to classes page
ClassGraphic The Allies’ decision to invade Sicily and Italy in 1943 was controversial, but once the invasion was underway their commitment never wavered. Rick Atkinson’s description of the Italian campaign has been described as one of the outstanding accounts of World War II. Atkinson presents the war as a clash not only of impersonal forces but also of individual characters with strong wills. His research includes the use of participant letters, diaries, and memoirs. Join this study group to read and discuss this fascinating phase of the war. The text will be Atkinson’s The Liberation Trilogy, Vol II, The Day of Battle, The War in Sicily and Italy, 1943-1944 (Henry Holt and Company, 2007) by Rick Atkinson.
