Ike said it: GI's report that Italy was the Worst

Recently I was watching a documentary set that features an ongoing narrative by General Eisenhower. In one segment he states "All the men I've spoken to that have been in 3 or 4 campaigns all considered the Italian Campaign the toughest, without a doubt."

Now I'm sure that there are many who served in the Pacific and other areas who would beg to differ, but I thought I'd mention this since there are so many Vets here that served in Italy. ;) All that mud looks plenty miserable to me....
