I bought this book when it first appeared and was amazed at the wealth of detail, location maps and the general presentation of what is basically dry fact. There is a wealth of understanding of the times and events, that the author was able to bring to the the lay reader, that stands out in my mind even today. He provided military undestanding, foundation and logistics for the campaigns waged in these three areas. A major work for the WWII History 0fficiando

When I was a pre-teen, in the 50s, a friend of mine's father had served in the submarine service in the Pacific & had the complete set. He let me read them and that started me on a life-long fascination with history. They are finally back in print and, after over 45 years, I now own the complete set myself. They are just as good now as they were then and I cannot recommend them too highly. I plan on leaving my set in my will to my grandson.

Format: Hardcover
This ninth volume of Admiral Morison's great work brings us back to the European theatre of operations, resuming the story interrupted after the success of operation "Torch" in 1942. It describes the successive allied landings in Sicily and at Salerno in 1943 and at Anzio-Nettuno in the beginning of 1944. Those three operations are described in great detail, with a great deal of place devoted to the land battles. The writing is as usual of the highest quality and the maps are excellent. The illustrations however could be better - but it is a minor point. General Patton playing a considerable role in the Sicilian fight (and dropping later by as visitor), be prepared for some absolutely delicious anecdotes...))) I couldn't however agree with some of author's conclusions.

Below, please find some more remarks on each of three main parts.

1. Invasion of Sicily (Operation "Husky"), 10 July-17 August 1943.

This is the best part of the book. It begins with the strategic debate among allies about the next move once Tunisia is taken - and it was quite a debate, with many tense but also some quasi comical moments... Once Sicily is selected to be the next target Admiral Morison describes the planning and training, secret operations destined to deceive Hitler and Mussolini about allies real intentions, preparatory air strikes and finally the landings themselves. Once the troops were disembarked (with very little immediate resistance) the real campaign begins - and it was a tough one.

Morison's multi-volume history of the US Navy in World War Two is a must have for the history buff. It's very interesting to compare what he wrote immediately after the war (he was an observer in many of the battles) with what has been written in years since that have benefited from research and multiple sources.
