Book Picks

This week, I am featuring three books by Rick Atkinson: The Liberation Trilogy. These three books trace the war against the Third Reich in North Africa, Sicily and Italy, and ultimately against fortress Europa. Atkinson’s writing is among the finest narrative style I have ever encountered and his research is meticulous. Seriously, I have read all three volumes twice! And all things considered, that says quite a bit. Check out the volumes individually below - or - just do yourself a favor and snag the BOXED SET.
