The landing at Anzio - 2nd World War
I write this to honour your soldiers who didn't take part in the landings in Normandy.
Your troups went further than that. Your guys also played a huge part in eradicading the Nazi grip on other places.
Italy was a victim in all of this - and, even worse, they had Mussolini on their side. Greece was also victim of cruelty, not to mention the atempt to eradicate the Jewish communities. The atrocities were too bad even to to describe them, throughout the war.
In Italy, people were reduced to eating rats and cats, and famine was one way in which the population was reduced.
The turn in fortunes came when you guys landed in a place called Anzio, a small seaside place with ample beaches. They brought food, they vanquished the nazis.
History has it that the famed dish Spaghetti alla Carbonara was devised by you guys, because they had the meagre ingredients to help a starving people.
The landing at Anzio was the turning point, along with the battle of Montessino.
Mussolini was defeated, and, further north, you guys freed thousands of people from the Nazis.
There is a film 'La Vita è Bella' that outlines the story.
Let's not forget your guys who did that.
