«Marshalling a wealth of primary and secondary sources into an engrossing narrative, Holland fills a yawning gap in histories of WWII. This magisterial account is a must-read for military history fans.»

Publishers Weekly

«Perfect territory for a military historian of Holland's talents»

The Times

«Historians too often neglect that emotional tapestry. War is characterised as arrows on a map, tables of munitions, cold casualty statistics. Holland's skill lies in bringing these warriors to life with vivid prose. He's a prolific historian of the war, but each book is constructed with great care and emotional commitment...Holland is obsessed with war, but fortunately does not seem to love it. He recognises its beauty, but also its vileness»

The Times

«Holland argues very effectively that the success of Husky was a turning point in the war»

Times Literary Supplement

«Holland makes the capture of the island one of the great turning-point battles of the war»
