The bombardment which filled your mind and your ears is only a line of flame or of smoke, and a thin line at that, midway up the film [. . .] Only rarely in a whole war do you get the truly spectacular." - page 81. A "full and authoritative account of the campaign for Trieste in the spring of 1945." "In this book, his first about the war, he tells in hour-to-hour detail the story of those dramatic May days in which the British Eighth Army, with the New Zealand Division at its head, thrust into Trieste from the West and there encountered the Jugoslav Fourth Army from the East."
