For the Allied armies fighting their way up the Italian boot in early 1944, Rome was the prize that could only be won through a massive offensive.

The book is a fitting testament to the bravery of soldiers like the badly wounded Captain Pierre Potvin, who survived more than 30 hours alone on the battlefield.
