Sicily '43 cover

Operation Husky

By July 1943, the tides of war had turned on the Germans. Tunisia fell in May leaving no Axis territory in North Africa. On July 5th they had launched their last great offensive on the Russian Front at Kursk and were nearing their farthest point of advance when the Allies struck at the "soft underbelly" of Europe by invading Sicily.

The invading American and British forces took 38 days to capture the island due to the skillful defense and fighting withdrawal in some of the most difficult terrain in the war.
