The Allies take the fight to the enemy in this vivid historical account by the British prime minister and recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature.   In this fifth volume of his magnificent history of World War II, Winston Churchill recounts the story of the Allied forces going on the offensive. Mussolini falls, Hitler is besieged on three sides, and the Japanese find it near impossible to maintain a grip on the territories they had recently overtaken. Stalin, Churchill, and Roosevelt work toward keeping their uneasy partnership moving in concert, and much of this volume is dedicated to describing the intricate negotiations that went on to sustain this partnership toward one single goal.   This six-volume account of the struggle between the Allied Powers in Europe against Germany and the Axis during World War II, told from the unique viewpoint of a British prime minister, it is also the story of one nation's heroic role in the fight against tyranny, enriched with fascinating primary sources. We are presented with not only Churchill's retrospective analysis of the war, but also memos, letters, orders, speeches, and telegrams, day-by-day accounts of reactions as the drama intensifies. Throughout these volumes, we listen as strategies and counterstrategies unfold in response to Hitler's conquest of Europe, planned invasion of England, and assault on Russia, in a mesmerizing account of the crucial decisions made as the fate of the world hangs in the balance.… (mer)

Another engrossing volume of World War 2 history from one in a front row seat. ( )

Now the Allies start grinding their way forward. My previous view of Sicily, Italy, and Monty was through the movie Patton, so interesting to get a view which barely mentions the latter. Perhaps most fascinating in all of these volumes have been the appendices featuring complete telegrams and minutes and seeing how much of a micromanager Churchill was, concerning himself in everything from grand political strategy to the production of playing card decks and everything in between.

The fifth entry in Churchill's magnificent journey through WWII, Churchill describes the period of time between the summer of 1943 to June of 1944 when the tide had turn and defeat of the Axis powers was inevitable - the means were the only uncertain thing.

The correspondence between leaders is the fascinating thing to watch here, as Stalin again and again hammers home the need for a second front while Churchill and FDR stutter and stammer for more time, more resources. It's apparent by this time that Stalin's forces were doing the heavy lifting, and it's likely, though not mentioned, the other allies were more than willing to see the Soviets and Germans hammer each other for awhile.

The book goes into much detail regarding preparations for the Normandy invasion, and how the limiting factor of landing craft availability was a constraining resource.

By the D-day invasion it had become apparent that the Soviet Union and the quickly mobilizing US forces were the dominant players on the Allies side, though Churchill is quick to mention every role that Great Britain plays.

A terrific addition to the series, well worth reading.

LA MORSA SI STRINGE
Il quinto volume della Storia della seconda guerra mondiale si suddivide ancora in due. parti: la prima ha per titolo "La campagna d'Italia", la seconda "Da Teheran a Roma". La prima parte comprende le fasi di piti palpitante interesse per il lettore italiano perché abbraccia il periodo che va dal maggio all'ottobre 1943, con le ore piti tragiche e dolorose della storia del nostro Paese. Incominciando COn gli sbarchi in Sicilia e l'invasione dell'isola, l'Autore segue passo passo gli eserciti che risalgono la penisola dopo lo sbarco di Salerno, narra il colpo di Stato del 25 luglio e la caduta di Mussolini, la firma delI'armistizio di Cassibile, le trattative e lo sviluppo della cobelligeranza italiana. A fianco delle operazioni militari, 1'Autore espone minutamente la storia dell' attività diplomatica attraverso una serie di accordi, conferenze, colloqui politici interessantissimi. Tutto questo incalzare di avvenimenti, che lascia intravvedere ormai 1'ora della fatale soluzione, è trattato con particolare dovizia di documentazione che consente al lettore il piò chiaro ambientamento in questa fase complessa ed inquietante del secondo conflitto mondiale. La seconda parte abbraccia il periodo, importantissimo dal punto di vista politico-diplomatico, che va dalla prima conferenza dei "tre grandi" di Teheran (novembre 1943) sino alla vigilia dello sbarco in Normandia (6 giugno 1944). Dopo la conquista dell' Africa e 1'armistizio italiano, la vittoria finale delle Nazioni Unite è ormai certa; è perciò naturale che ai piani militari per le battaglie che ancora restano da combattere si affianchino i primi progetti politici per il dopoguerra

The End in Africa, The Invasion of Italy, and D-Day. WSC is still a master stylist and it's a readable account. The other Allied Rulers suffer the drawback of not having their cases presented so immediately. It suffers from not being able to discuss Ultra, but perhaps the Russians still did not know of it in 1952. ( )
