"My father fought throughout the Italian campaign and I can remember him saying to me, ‘It is the side which is less frightened who wins.'

That is why I have chosen to base this article on Lloyd M Wells's book From Anzio to the Alps, a young officer's account of the savage fighting in central Italy as experienced by the 6th Armored Infantry Regiment of the US Army.

The book is remarkable on several counts. First, it deals in a very understated way with the thoughts, emotions, fears, and triumphs of a young civilian who has no idea what he is about to face as an infantry officer with a front-line unit. Never is his heroism spelt out: his record of wounds and decorations is allowed to speak for itself…."

Doesn't really sound like an interesting battle for those who want to have their armoured infantry units engage in wide sweeping actions, rather than slogging up a hill side like regular leg infantry.
