More About This Title Vessel of Sadness


This is the story of those who fought and died in 1944 at Anzio. Their task was to seize the Alban Hills and then Rome, but instead, for more than four months, they sank into the mud of the Anzio plain and fought for their lives. There are no heroes, no victories. Even national differences merge and are forgotten in this larger story of humanity.
