Riassunto: Some forces got the glory

In Normandy the great invasion had begun. In the Pacific, the U.S. Navy went toe to toe with Japan. And far from the spotlight-but right in the heart of World War II-the U.S. Seventh Army was charging "up the gut" of Nazi-held Europe. Overlooked by the press and historians, the Seventh would battle its way from Sicily to France and into Germany itself.

Others won the war

In this thrilling chronicle, Charles Whiting captures the men who risked their lives to fight for the Seventh, from Patton-charismatic, ferocious and flawed-to a hardscrabble Texan named Audie Murphy, America's most decorated fighting man. Here are blow-by-blow accounts of courageous charges against dug-in German machine gun nests, of horrific battles through the bloodied snows of the Alps, ferocious Panzer-led counterstrikes, sniper attacks, and finally an assault on Hitler's own mountaintop retreat, the Eagle's Nest.

America's forgotten army

Capturing war in all its vivid horror and courage, America's Forgotten Army is an unforgettable testament to American GIs-the ordinary men whose blood and bravery crushed the powers of the Third Reich.

L'autore: Charles Whiting, a premier historian of World War II, served with a reconnaissance outfit in the war. He is the author of several bestselling books, including Patton, The Last Assault and Death on a Distant Frontier. He currently lives in York, England.
