This account of the Allied invasion of Sicily in July and August 1943 concentrates on the actual invasion, from Allied debates over strategy and planning of the invasion, plans and dispositions of both Allied and Axis forces, and the invasion's execution, covering naval, ground and air operations.

The seminal lesson of the campaign, according to its supreme commander, was the potential for airborne operations.

In spite of all of the difficulties which they had encountered, the blame for which Eisenhower shouldered himself, the Allied airborne troops had “contributed markedly to success.”
