Charles Whiting, a premier historian of World War II, served with a reconnaissance outfit in the war. He is the author of several bestselling books, including Patton, The Last Assault and Death on a Distant Frontier. He currently lives in York, England. It not only gives a detailed record of "who went where when", but also gave a few "why's" and did a good job of explaining the conflict within the army versus the French and in the . general staff as well. My grandfather served in the 7th army for a time and this was a good filler on where he was and why.

America's Forgotten Army book. Seventh Army, which fought its way through Sicily and Southern France to the last Nazi stronghold in Bavaria. The desperate struggle to free Europe from the Nazi scourge was fought on many fronts, but never before has the story of America's Seventh Army been fully explored.

If there is a weakness, it is the book’s reliance on secondary sources. Any of the book’s shortcomings, however, are more than made up for by Whiting’s flowing prose. He does not bog down in tiresome reports of corps realignments or Army jargon.

America's forgotten heroes: 100 years ago, the . finally agreed to send soldiers to join the Allies in the trenches and help turn the course of WWI. So why, asks a top historian, is their awesome bravery barely remembered today? By Sir Hew Strachan For The Daily Mail. In addition, the French army had passed its peak by 1917 and the British would do so in that year. Thereafter both would decline in numbers. Many Americans saw it as an act of war. Charles E. Lauriat Jr, a publisher from Boston, described how he helped another woman into a lifeboat.

This is the first complete account of the U.S. Seventh Army, which fought its way through Sicily and Southern France to the last Nazi stronghold in Bavaria. The desperate struggle to free Europe from the Nazi scourge was fought on many fronts, but never before has the story of America's Seventh Army been fully explored. Now bestselling author Charles Whiting tells the stories of the commanders—Patton, Truscott, Patch—and the “average Joes” (including Audie Murphy, the most decorated soldier of the war), from their first battles in Sicily to their capture of Hitler's “Eagle's Nest.” This important new book finally balances the record of U.S. fighting men in World War II.

Got this for my dad as a gift. Brought back alot of memories for him when he was serving in the U.S. Seventh Army in WW II. The found the writing to be both accurate and enjoyable to read.

Charles Whiting has written an excellent,readable history of a very important segment of WWII in Europe that the press,the public and even many historians neglected. The book has only 2 flaws but they are major:In dividing the book into campaigns both in the Table of Contents and the Chapter headings , the Invasion of Southern France and the Vosges Mountain Attack are shown with dates in 1943! Obviously they took place in 1944 after the June 6 D-Day Invasion in Normandy.
The author deserves better than this. Either his editor or proof reader should be fired. I hope the 2nd edition corrects this.
