An interesting short book on the events in Ortona at that time. An acceptable primer on the subject but
falls short of this earlier work on Ortorna. It is always good to keep the memories alive on this period in our country's history. If you had a relative there during the war as I did, these works always provide some new material or anecdotes that are new. A very short book and well worth the read.
