After the defeat of Rommel in early 1943, British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, and President Franklin Roosevelt met at Casablanca in North Africa to plan their next move.
Roosevelt's generals had their eyes squarely fixed on northern Europe and were already thinking about an invasion from southern England across the English Channel. Churchill advocated attacking Hitler through southern Europe, by taking the island of Sicily, followed by an invasion of the Italian mainland. British and American troops would then proceed up the boot of Italy and link up with the Russian Army in southeastern Europe. The combined Russian-American-British force would be unstoppable and Hitler would be finished.
The invasion of Sicily began on Saturday, July 10, 1943, with the British 8th Army, led by General Bernard Montgomery, coming ashore the island's southern coast along with the American 7th Army, led by General George Patton. Facing the battle-tested Allies were 400,000 Italians, reluctant warriors drafted into the army of Italy's longtime dictator, Benito Mussolini.
