Overview

Eighth Army was Britain’s most famous field army of the twentieth century.

This book studies the experience of Eighth Army in the Italian campaign, examining how a force accustomed to the open spaces of North Africa adjusted to the difficult terrain of Italy where fighting became much more a matter for the infantry than for the armor.

The book uses official records at various levels, personal accounts – some never before published – and published material to present a picture of an army that, although defined as British, was one of the war’s most cosmopolitan formations.
