    Although nominally an American formation, the Fifth Army that fought in Italy from 1943-45 was a coalition force assembled from more than 20 allied nations. With a view to the lessons that can be applied to the deployment of multinational coalition forces today, this book reviews the problems British general Harold Alexander faced organizing his disparate resources against a determined opposition in difficult terrain, and dealing with the highly ambitious American commander Mark Clark.
