This is a new hardcover with dust jacket. 2017 Public Affairs Books.

In Nov. 1942, as a part of Operation Torch, 33,000 American soldiers sailed undetected across the Atlantic and stormed the beaches of French Morocco. 74 hrs later, the Americans controlled the country and one of the most valuable wartime ports; Casablanca. This is the riveting and untold story of the glamorous city - memorialize in the classic film that was rush-released in 1942 to capitalize on the drama that was unfolding in North Africa at the heart of WWII. Casablanca had evolved from an exotic travel destination to a key military target after the French surrender to Germany. Nazi agents infiltrated the city in search of power and loyalty. The resistance was not far behind and a network of Allied spies was formed. Compelling history that reads like fiction but as history buffs will confirm, is all very true.
