Operation Dragoon in 1944 WWII...

Item # 569544

September 04, 1943

TAUNTON DAILY GAZETTE, Massachusetts, September 4, 1943 

* Operation Avalanche 
* Allies invade Italy 

This 12 page newspaper has a nice three line banner headline on the front page: "Allied Reinforcements Pour Into Italy As Eighth Army Sweeps Inland Taking Many Prisoners; Meet Little Opposition"

Nice headline for display.

Other news of the day throughout with much on WWII. Light browning with little margin wear, otherwise good.

wikipedia notes: The Allied invasion of Italy, was the Allied landing on mainland Italy on September 3, 1943, by General Harold Alexander's 15th Army Group (comprising Mark Clark's U.S. Fifth Army and Bernard Montgomery's British Eighth Army) during World War II. The operation followed the successful invasion of Sicily during the Italian Campaign. The main invasion force landed around Salerno on the western coast in Operation Avalanche.
