Raleigh Trevelyan was a 21-year-old British soldier when he landed at Anzio. Now he's a historian, unearthing facts about this bloody, grotesque campaign, interviewing former comrades, Italians, and even the Germans who manned the opposing works. This double vision is a rare treat. David Case has a fine BBC voice and narrates the text with passion and clarity. Beware the opening, though, since the flap copy is followed by a list of the names and titles of all the principal characters. Not even the prologue begins until you're more than halfway through the first side of the first tape. B.H.C. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 99]
