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.
