The code name for the Invasion of Sicily is “Operation Husky.” It was a major campaign of the Second World War from 9 July to 17 August 1943.

The Capture of Sicily and the invasion of the Anglo American was an improvement in the Italian campaign. It was the war that granted the allies the island of Sicily from the axis powers.

After the success of this event, the axis air, land, and naval forces were driven away from the Mediterranean Sea lanes were open to the Allied Merchant for the first time since its closures in 1941.

The Ally's power attacked at dawn with combined air and sea landings involving 150,000 troops, 3,000 ships, and 4,000 aircraft, which was directed to the southern shores of the island.
