Professional reviews

"This extensively researched and superbly written work gives a splendid account of the U.S. Army in its first major campaign in WWII. The invasion of North Africa in November 1942 was a combined effort with the British. In this campaign the woeful shortcomings and inexperience of the Americans was embarrassing and deadly. Yet from the growing pains of this humiliation the Americans learned, and in May 1943 the Axis forces were destroyed. This work shows the major characters, Eisenhower, Marshall, Bradley, Patton, Alexander, and Montgomery, in all their splendor and warts. The common soldier is not neglected, giving the listener a balanced and most interesting history. George Guidall's inflection, enunciation, pacing, and expression are flawless and a perfect match for this text. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
