Special Presentation: The Guns of the Mediterranean

In "The Guns of the Mediterranean," veteran speaker and American Rifleman contributing writer Martin K.A. Morgan transports us to the Second World War as it raged across the Mediterranean Basin from Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia, to Malta, Sicily and Italy. In battles at El Alamein, Kasserine Pass, Monte Cassino, and Anzio, Allied forces struggled against the Axis and felt the sting of German and Italian guns. But in the end, Allied troops entered Rome—the first Axis capital to be liberated—and continued pushing north through to the bitter end. It was an infantryman's war.
