The Mussolini Canal

The Mussolini Canal [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Mussolini Canal by Antonio Pennacchi Book Summary:

The Mussolini Canal is one of the great achievements of contemporary Italian fiction. It spans 100 years of Italian history as seen through the lives of the Peruzzi family, who are among the 30,000 peasants from Northern Italy sent down to farm the newly-drained Pontine Marshes outside Rome in the 1930s. Mussolini is revered by the Peruzzi family, who must reconcile their admiration for Il Duce with the failings of Fascism which slowly envelop them. Contemporary events permeate the book and the hardship and misery of earlier periods are seen against the background of modern prosperity. It won the Strega prize in 2010 in Italy and has sold over 400,000 copies in Italy

Anzio

The Mussolini Canal [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Anzio by Lloyd Clark Book Summary:

A harrowing and incisive “high-quality battle history” from one of the world’s finest military historians (Booklist). The Allied attack of Normandy beach and its resultant bloodbath have been immortalized in film and literature, but the US campaign on the beaches of Western Italy reigns as perhaps the deadliest battle of World War II’s western theater. In January 1944, about six months before D-Day, an Allied force of thirty-six thousand soldiers launched one of the first attacks on continental Europe at Anzio, a small coastal city thirty miles south of Rome. The assault was conceived as the first step toward an eventual siege of the Italian capital. But the advance stalled and Anzio beach became a death trap. After five months of brutal fighting and monumental casualties on both sides, the Allies finally cracked the German line and marched into Rome on June 5, the day before D-Day. Richly detailed and fueled by extensive archival research of newspapers, letters, and diaries—as well as scores of original interviews with surviving soldiers on both sides of the trenches—Anzio is a “relentlessly fascinating story with plenty of asides about individuals’ experiences” (Publishers Weekly). “Masterly . . . A heartbreaking, beautifully told story of wasted sacrifice.” —The Washington Post

Anzio Beachhead

The Mussolini Canal [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Anzio Beachhead by United States. Department of the Army. Historical Division Book Summary:

Anzio Beachhead, fourteenth in the series of studies of particular combat operations, is the story of how VI Corps of the American Fifth Army seized and held a strategic position far to the rear of the main fighting front, in the Italian campaign of 1944. Since VI Corps included British as well as American units, and the high command in Italy was in British rather than in American hands, the battle to maintain the Anzio beachhead was an Allied rather than an exclusively American operation. Essentially, this narrative of Anzio is confined to the first six weeks of bitter struggle to hold the beachhead against German attacks designed to drive the Allied forces from their foothold, a period which ended on 3 March. Thereafter, until the Allied offensive of May, the Anzio beachhead was a static and relatively quiet front. Then the beachhead forces spearheaded the drive that led to the capture of Rome. Only a sketch of this final and decisive phase of the Anzio operation is included in this narrative. This study is based upon a first narrative by Capt. John Bowditch, III, prepared in the field from military records and from notes and interviews recorded during and after the operation by Captain Bowditch and by 1st Lt. Robert W. Komer. The document details the Anzio landing (22-29 January), the Allied offensive (January 30-February 1), enemy attacks (3-12 February), the major German offensive (16-20 February), VI Corps holds the beachhead (20 February-3 March), and the breakthrough.

Finding Life

The Mussolini Canal [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Finding Life by Peter Sowa Book Summary:

When the attack on Pearl Harbor occurs, sixth-grader David is a Japanese child who has been raised Christian in America. Suddenly, many people view David and his family as “the enemy.” Japanese Americans found themselves sent to evacuation centers. They could bring only what they could carry, and most of their belongings were either sold or stolen in their absence. David could hardly believe it was happening; wasn’t America supposed to be the land of the free? David’s family was sent to Poston I, where 10,000 people dwelled in barracks surrounded by barbed wire and secured by armed guards. The living space was minimal, and privacy was nonexistent. Even so, there was a sense of hope, as people found time to laugh and attend church. The church brought Christians together from all across the West Coast, and David made friends that would last long after the evacuation centers closed. Following David’s family’s stay in America’s makeshift Japanese prison, they moved to Chicago, where David’s true path to adulthood began. Surrounded by gang fights consisting of white versus black, the Japanese new kid had nowhere to go—except to God, who would find a way to show David how to live a life of peace amidst chaos, love within hate, and ultimately salvation in the depths of damnation.

Anzio

The Mussolini Canal [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Anzio by Martin Blumenson Book Summary:

Anzio, a small town a mere hour's drive from Rome, became a battleground on which both Allies and Germans paid a bloody price. Planned by Churchill as a swift amphibious flanking maneuver, the 1943 battle of Anzio has been viewed by some as one of the most ill-conceived tactical operations of the Allied war effort, and by others as one of the war's singular lost opportunities. Blumenson examines the actions of the men involved, including Churchill, Eisenhower, Clark, and Montgomery, and takes into account records from Allied and German sources.

We Move Only Forward

The Mussolini Canal [Pdf/ePub] eBook

We Move Only Forward by James A. Wood Book Summary:

In the summer of 1942, six months after the American entry into the Second World War, the Canadian Army authorized the movement of nearly seven hundred soldiers to the United States for training as part of the First Special Service Force. From that summer until disbandment, Canadian and American soldiers served in a completely integrated military formation, a "North American" force that was without parallel in the history of either nation - even though the Force often proved a frustrating exercise in military cooperation.From the Aleutian Islands to the wartorn hills of Italy, from the Anzio Beachhead to the liberation of Rome and the invasion of Southern France, the First Special Service Force distinguished itself in combat and is today remembered as a proudly shared inheritance of two North American nations. We Move Only Forward presents the history of the Force from a Canadian perspective, focusing on the efforts taken in Ottawa, Washington and overseas to maintain a Canadian presence in the Force. This book traces the course of a complicated relationship between the First Special Service Force and those military bureaucracies. Set against a background of success in the field, difficulties arising from cooperation between unequal partners led to a gradual erosion of the unit's elite character, ending in December 1944, when the Force was disbanded and the Canadian element was quietly withdrawn.

Cassino

The Mussolini Canal [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Cassino by Ken Ford Book Summary:

Expertly fortified and stubbornly defended by some of Germany's finest troops, the glowering Cassino massif and the devastated town at its foot defied assault by American, British, French, Indian, New Zealand and Polish troops from January until May 1944. When the Gustav and Hitler Line defences were finally swept aside by Field Marshal Alexander's great Operation 'Diadem' in May, General Mark Clark's controversial decision to drive on Rome itself rather than cutting off the retreating German Tenth Army cast into question the prize actually gained by those five months of bloodletting. The grim story of the Four Battles of Cassino is told here in fascinating detail, supported by detailed appendices and some hundred photographs and maps; and illustrated by a striking portfolio of specially commissioned colour plates of troops of eight of the armies involved, by the renowned military artist Mike Chappell. AUTHOR: Ken Ford trained as a telecommunications engineer, but a fascination with military history led ultimately to a career change. He has a long-standing interest in the history of the Second World War and is the author of several books on the subject. 100 b/w photos

Granddaddy, Tell Us about the War

The Mussolini Canal [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Granddaddy, Tell Us about the War by Kenneth K. Gowen Book Summary:

The author was shocked into awareness of the reality outside his peaceful existence - a Mississippi boy's simple life - when Adolph Hitler plunged Europe into World War II. Less than four years later, Gowen was caught up in that reality, serving his country as an 18 year old draftee. The book moves from the early days of basic training, to landing in North Africa with the 69th Armored Field Artillery Battalion on September 2, 1943. From Africa it was on to Italy where he experienced the hardships & discouragements of the Italian campaign. He was wounded at Anzio. A major victory in Italy was realized with the capture of Rome. The 69th participated in the invasion of Southern France, & moved to the Alsace-Lorraine sector of France along the Rhine River, then into Germany & final victory. The 69th Armored Field Artillery Battalion faithfully supported groups including the 1st Armored Division, 14th Armored Division, 3rd Infantry Division, 36th Infantry Division, 103rd Infantry Division & the 42nd Infantry Division. Mixing wry humor, serious analysis & a little photography, Gowen's detailed memoir paints a vivid picture of the European campaign & the men & women who fought for our country's freedom.

Sledgehammers

The Mussolini Canal [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Sledgehammers by Christopher W. Wilbeck Book Summary:

Content. The Tiger and King Tiger tanks gained legendary status during World War II. Numerous tank commanders attained phenomenal numbers of kills and accomplished extraordinary feats during combat in these tanks, increasing the legend to near mythic proportions after the war. By the end of the war, the Germans created eleven Army and three Waffen-SS heavy tank battalions. These heavy tank battalions were employed in nearly every part of Europe against almost every enemy of Germany. As vast in breadth and scope as the employment of Tiger battalions themselves, this book provides historical examples and analysis of heavy tank battalions? actions in North Africa, Normandy, Italy, the Ardennes Offensive, and numerous battles on the Eastern Front including Operation Zitadelle/the Battle of Kursk, Operation Bagration, the battle of the Cherkassy Pocket, late war attacks to relieve Budapest, and many other, more minor engagements.Significance. Although a great deal has already been published about Tiger tanks' technical details and some of the units which used them, until now, very little has been written concerning the organization and tactical employment of these tanks throughout the German armed forces and across the theaters in which they were employed. Sledgehammers provides an in-depth look at heavy tank battalions? organizations and tactics, including the tactical doctrine by which these elite units were supposed to fight and how they were actually employed on the battlefield by their commanders and crews.Even given the Tiger's reputation, many readers will be amazed by the fearsome casualties inflicted by the crews of many of these behemoth armored vehicles. It is safe to say that no other armored vehicle of the war wreaked as much havoc among enemy formations as Tigers. Many will, however, also find it equally stunning to learn of the Tigers? many technical and tactical vulnerabilities. Through the systematic use of extremely detailed primary source and other research, Sledgehammers demolishes several major myths about Tigers in World War II. Most readers will be shocked by the actual casualties inflicted by Allied tactical aircraft (far fewer than many think!); the loss rate of Tigers to mechanical failures (always high, and sometimes decisively so); the widespread use?and consequent high losses?of Tigers in mine clearing operations (even when they were critically needed for other operations); and much more.Meticulously researched and written with the respect for Tiger crews and the insights that only a professional tanker can bring to the subject, Sledgehammers synthesizes information to provide new and definitive perspectives into the strengths and flaws of World War II?s most feared and legendary tanks.
