Through the eyes of thirteen men and women from seven different nations, Christian Jennings gives readers an unprecedented look inside this unsung but highly significant campaign. Just like Stephen Ambrose's Band of Brothers, Jennings vividly recounts the acts of valor performed by these courageous young soldiers as they fought uphill against overwhelming odds, even as many faced discrimination from their allies and superiors. Lie in wait with a troop of Canadian fur trappers turned snipers. Creep along treacherous mountain paths with a company of Indian warriors as they assault fortified positions armed with only rifles. Learn to fear a one-armed SS-Major guilty of some of the most atrocious war-crimes in the European theater. All these stories and more pack the pages of this faced-paced and action-heavy history, taking readers inside one of the most important, and least discussed, campaigns of World War II.
CHRISTIAN JENNINGS has been an investigative journalist, a war correspondent and a history, science and current affairs author for over twenty years, working mainly in the Balkans, Africa and EU. From 1999 - 2012 he wrote for such publications as The Economist, The Daily Telegraph, The Scotsman and Wired magazine. Originally from the UK, he has lived in Kosovo, Bosnia, Macedonia, and Serbia.
