1943: The Victory That Never Was

Grigg, John

New York: Zebra Books, 1985. 348 Pages. May 1984 edition. This book is in Three Parts: From Pearl Harobr to Torch, Aspects of 1943, and Questions and Arguments. In January, 1943, the Allies met in Casablanca to determine a military strategy for winning the war. FDR was being pressured at home to change priorities and give greater resources to the Pacific campaign. Winston Churchill suggested combined bombings and landings all along Europe's western coast. British Field Marshal Sir Alan Brooke advised a Mediterranean invasion, beginning with Italy, the soft underbelly of the continent. And astute U.S. General George Marshall recommended the invasion of France as the path to Nazi Germany's destruction. Field Marshal Brooke's strategy won. But the British victory in the war of words may ultimately have been a tragic mistake-delaying an Allied victory for nearly two years. Contents in 29 Chapters: America In, Churchill & Roosevelt, How To Win? The Tide Turns in Russia, And in the Pacific, British Calamities, Churchill in Trouble, The Kindling of Torch, Hazards of Torch, Churchill's Journey, Victory At Last, Unfinished Business in North Africa, Emperors at Casablanca, The Price of Tunis, Italian Follies, The Captive Giant, Bombing On Regardless, Fallacies about France, The World-Sharers, The Victory That Was, The Wilmot Thesis, Impossible to Land in 1943, Atlantic Wall Too Strong, Not Enough Landing Craft, Technical Resources Inadequate, American Mistakes, Brithsh Mistakes, Risk and Cost of Delay, and The Victory That Might Have Been. . Second Printing. Mass Market Paperback. Very Good.
