I bought the original 1962 edition of this book for almost literally a bag of peanuts in the local second-hand bookstore, because I expected it to be a piece of nationalistic, xenophobic Cold-War quasi-propaganda (the original cover contributes a lot to this superficial impression). On a more careful and thorough reading it has turned out to be a captivating and quite neutral story of the battle, consiting of a number of fictionalised accounts of its participants, intertwined into a novel.

Prior to the invasion in France, the Allies invaded Italy. Anzio was a difficult nut to crack as the Germans had over ruled the Italians and had time to build several lines of defense. Fehrenbach does his usual good job dealing with historical events.
The edition I read, which looks the same the picture here, was full of typos and bizarre punctuation. I also greatly disliked the author's writing style. But I enjoyed the overall story of Anzio.
