Atkinson has been a reporter for The Kansas City Times and The Washington Post. His first book was "The Long Gray Line: The American Journey of West Point's Class of 1966. Time magazine and The Washington Post both labeled the book "brilliant." In 2002, Atkinson published the first volume of his Liberation Trilogy, "An Army at Dawn: The War in North Africa, 1942-1943," to widespread acclaim. Equally praised was the second volume, "The Day of Battle: The War in Sicily and Italy, 1943-1944." The final volume is "The Guns at Last Light: The War in Western Europe, 1944-1945," which The Wall Street Journal has called "magnificent."
