Christopher Hayes’s Letter

Anzio was the scene of heavy fighting late in World War II. On January 22, 1944, the Allies achieved what probably was the most complete tactical surprise of the war by landing in excess of 36,000 troops and 3,000 vehicles before midnight, securing a beachhead only 37 miles (60 km) from Rome.

Casualties during the four-month operation approximated 25,000 for the Allies and 30,000 for the Axis forces. (source: Encyclopaedia Britannica)
