 What were the Roles and Capabilities of Allied Airpower during the Italian Campaign   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The mixed results of Allied efforts to interdict the Axis armies during the Italian campaign are seen in the Axis evacuation from Sicily at Messina, the Allied invasions of Salerno and Anzio, and Operations STRANGLE and DIADEM.
Airpower’s roles in today’s joint campaigns (air superiority, interdiction, CAS, and strategic bombing) were refined during this struggle, and many of the procedures and systems cultivated in Italy still exist in doctrine manuals and tactics pamphlets used in Air Forces throughout the world.
However, the Italian campaign effectively demonstrates the dangers of over-reliance on airpower capabilities rather than conducting joint campaigns, especially when confronting a determined enemy willing to fight on in the face of overwhelming odds.

 ITALIAN CAMPAIGN: PO VALLEY: 1945

Nineteen months later, in March 1945, after hard fighting against the Gustav Line in the rugged mountainous spine of Southern Italy, the landing at Anzio, their advance up the Liri valley to capture Rome, and more mountain fighting in the North Apennines, the Allies were still south of the Po Valley and the Alps.

 Churchill and the Italian Campaign - The Churchill Centre
They remember the Italian campaign vaguely - perhaps Cassino, perhaps that the Italian army was a flop.
The campaign itself was a long one: from September 1943, when the first landing in the 'boot' took place and a few days later when we landed at Salerno, until we reached the Brenner pass in May 1945-almost two years later.
The Allies were certainly going to drive the German and Italian armies out of Africa and capture a great number of soldiers and guns and tanks and all the paraphernalia an army carries with it.

The ad campaign by the RSCG agency in 1989 responded to Hamlet’s question by stressing the company’s identity and its overall significance: “Because B&B Italia revolutionized our way of experiencing the home.
This is the first publicity campaign where … B&B Italia itself is the subject, author of its own products, entirely responsible for their own innovative content and their value in the history of design.”
B&B Italia’s aesthetic changed with the times, and by the mid-90’s the ad campaigns presented a series of tranquil domestic spaces that occasionally combined new pieces with the company’s classic models.

 HIST 3804: The Italian Campaign   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The Second World War Allied campaign in Italy is often labelled a "sideshow" compared to the better-known battles in Normandy and Northwest Europe.
Most importantly, the Allies used Italian battlefields to divert and destroy a large portion of the German Army building in the west, preventing it from concentrating to defeat the expected attack along Europe's northwest coast.
Although the course will address the campaign as a whole, special attention will be paid to the highly successful, yet little-known Canadian contribution to the battles of Ortona, the Liri Valley and the Gothic Line.
