Though father's Navy memoirs contain information about both military engagements, Mr. Atkinson piles on meaningful details by the tonne. I'm knee deep in WW2 history and can't get enough. (Off to the bookstore I go if my wife doesn't find the two other volumes. My budget will take a whack but that's why I make birdhouses).
["Father circumnavigated Africa aboard SS Silver Walnut, 1943"]
For those wishing to learn more about Sicily and Italy, I highly recommend Atkinson's book.
