Description
By the time Mark Clark's Fifth Army reached a village north of Naples in December 1943, a tough but rapid Allied sweep through Sicily was halted by an entrenched German army. On the slopes of a mountain over San Pietro, the death of a single platoon captain, Henry Waskow, epitomized the struggle. Here the author of Twelve Desperate Miles chronicles the quietly heroic and beloved Captain Waskow and his company as they make their way into battle, from which eight out of every ten men will not return. For Americans back home, two enduring worksójournalist Ernie Pyle's dispatch about Waskow's death and filmmaker John Huston's documentary of the battleówill rivet and shock the nation.
