Complete title: The Rock of Anzio - From Sicily to Dachau: A History of the U.S. 45th Infantry Division. From the dust jacket: "While the Germans decimated most of the Allied units at Anzio, they threw their strongest efforts against one American division - the 45th Infantry Division. The 45th was a National Guard unit made up of "citizen soldiers" from the Southwest, including thousands of Native Americans. Through sheer determination and against overwhelming odds, the 45th Division "Thunderbirds" saved the beachhead at Anzio from annihilation, just as they had done at Salerno six months earlier, breaking the back of the German onslaught. Eight members of the 45th - including the first three Native Americans so honored - earned the Congressional Medal of Honor for the division's 511 days of combat. From Italy, the 45th went on to blaze a distinguished path through France and Germany, suffering some of the heaviest casualty rates of any U.S. Army unit in World War II. And in its final days, the 45th Infantry Division liberated the notorious Dachau concentration camp, resulting in a controversial incident in which Nazi camp guards were executed by outraged American soldiers - a shocking story told here in complete detail for the first time". Approx 55 photographs. 26 maps. Dust jacket edges age toned. Light aging on internal pages. Binding tight. Steve's Bookshelves LLC Inventory #02-000679-1456.

Summary: "The 45th was one of the great divisions of the U.S. Army in World War II and deserves to have its story told. The Rock of Anzio is extremely well written, original, and well documented. Whitlock does full justice to the remarkable bravery and sacrifice of the men of the 45th". Carlo D'Este Author of PattonAnzio was one of the greatest battles of World War II -- a desperate gamble to land a large amphibious force behind German lines in Italy in the hope that the war could be shortened by capturing Rome. It also turned out to be one of the bloodiest battles in U.S. military history.While the Germans decimated most of the Allied units at Anzio, they threw their strongest attempts to split the beachhead against one American division -- the 45th Infantry Division. The 45th was a National Guard unit made up of "citizen soldiers" from the Southwest, including thousands of Native Americans.Based on extensive research into archives, photos, letters, diaries, previously classified official records, and scores of personal interviews with surviving veterans of the 45th, The Rock of Anzio is written with an immediacy that puts the reader right onto the battlefield and shows us war through the eyes of ordinary men called upon to perform extraordinary deeds.
