Publicação da Brill irá abordar a eficácia de combate Aliada na Itália.

Prevista para 2011 a publicação agregando os textos da conferência “Allied Fighting Effectiveness in North Africa and Italy 1943-45”, realizada pelo King’s College e o Imperial War Museum. O livro será publicado pela Brill, editora holandesa baseada em Leiden e fundada em 1785.

Ainda não sei se todos participantes terão seus capítulos incluídos. A conferência enfocou, entre outros assuntos, os problemas de coalizão e treinamento, desde o Norte da África até o Norte da Itália, com uma apresentação de paper sobre a FEB. Abaixo, a lista completa dos temas e participantes. Mesmo se a obra não contar com todos os textos apresentados, sem dúvida irá consistir de uma colaboração válida para a discussão sem fim sobre as dificuldades e a validade da campanha da Itália.

A conferência distinguiu-se pela presença do historiadores Michael Howard e Steve Weiss, ambos veteranos da Itália. Na foto, Steve Weiss, que serviu como esclarecedor na 36.a Divisão de Infantaria.

2 Respostas para “Publicação da Brill irá abordar a eficácia de combate Aliada na Itália.”

  1. Existe outras publicações sobre as operações na Itália ou essa será a primeira ?

  2. Nessa perspectiva analítica mais focada não há dúvida que essa publicação inova. Mas existem várias, sim: Shelford Bidwell e Dominick Graham, Carlo D’Este, WGF Jackson, Ian Gooderson, Eric Morris, Ernst F. Fisher, Chester Starr, entre outros, escreveram livros, para não falar nos inúmeros artigos. A campanha é bem discutida. Continua sendo polêmica.
