Blumenson, Martin: Salerno To Cassino.v1. 17 Dec2012
In September 1943 a combined British and American amphibious force finally made the first Allied landing on the continent of Europe. After campaigns which began with amphibious assaults in both Africa and Sicily, the Allies were hoping that the invasion of Italy would be an equally successful endeavor. Although the Italian capitulation on the eve of the invasion filled the troops with confidence that enemy resistance would rapidly collapse, the Allied campaign in Italy was as tough as any fought in World War II; if anything, the Italian surrender hardened German resistance. 'Salerno to Cassino' begins the story of the Allied effort to wrest control of Italy from its German occupiers, while 'Cassino to the Alps' provides the conclusion.
The work is a project of the US Army Center for Military History and is profusely illustrated with maps and pictures. It is formatted for an 800x600 e-ink screen and is in the public domain.
