Customer Review

on June 22, 2003
This is military history at its worst since this book is nothing more than a unrelated collection of short stories. The author never fully discusses American doctrine, stragedy, or the Darlan controversory.Nor is the German,French,and British perspectives of the American army written about in this overly romantic book about the North African campaign. Instead Atkinson only writes about personal histories that are probably copied from other popular histories. If you are a serious student of the Second World War this book will surely disappoint.The people that awarded this book the Pulitizer Prize should be ashamed of themselves!
