WM438 4 Panzer Division 1938-1945

In September 1943, shortly after the conquest of Sicily, the Allied armies made amphibious assaults on the Italian Mainland at Calabria, Taranto and along the Gulf of Salerno beaches. The Italian Government quickly capitulated but the Germans fought on. Although the British XIII Corps and 1st Airborne s attacks were largely uncontested in Calabria and Taranto, the Allied Fifth Army s beachheads at Salerno underwent savage Nazi counterattacks. Through a photographic record, this book traces the history of the invasion.
