[Mission Accomplished: Their Story]

OVER wadies and wastes of North Africa, the unnamed hills of Sicily, and the bleak mountains of Italy, Allied soldiers made history in the Mediterranean campaigns. They fought over roads the Romans built; across battlefields of long ago; through ancient ruins and modern cities; across endless ridges and through dusty or flood-swept valleys. They took the best the Germans had and advanced almost 3,000 miles—from El Alamein and Casablanca to the Brenner Pass.

This is their story—of Arabs and Indians; truck drivers and tail gunners; K-rations and trench feet; endurance and courage; the Anzio Express and Hill 609.

To those who were killed in action, this book is dedicated.
