General Mark Wayne Clark (1896-1984) served in World Wars I & II, and the Korean War. During World War II, he commanded the Allied Fifth Army leading its capture of Rome in June 1944. This memoir chronicles campaigns in North Africa preceding take over of Italy. Clark has been heavily criticized for ignoring the orders of his superior officer, General Harold Alexander, and is to blame for the escape of the German 10th Army which he let slip away in his pursuit of being the first to enter Rome-a strategically unimportant city. The German 10th Army joined with their countrymen at the Trasimene Line.  In 1945 Clark became the youngest American to be promoted to general.
