..."historian Norman Gelb masterfully re-creates the remarkable story of this campaign, which developed the strategy and tactics crucial to Germany's ultimate defeat. His story begins in early 1942, when the United States, Engand, and the Soviet Union appeared locked in a losing struggle against the Axis powers. Yet just how and where to launch their offensive divided the Allies from the start...The story of how Churchill hijacked the direction of Allied strategy from Roosevelt's generals and determined the future course of World War II in Europe is as dramatic and suspenseful as the plainning and execution of Torch itself..."

No damage to covers or pages. The dust jacket shows some wear.
