World War II/European-African-Middle Eastern Theater/North Apennines Campaign (1944-45)
From Month/Year
September / 1944
To Month/Year
April / 1945

Description
(North Apennines Campaign 10 September 1944 to 4 April 1945)  In Italy during the fall and winter of 1944-1945 the Allies used their air power against the enemy’s communications as ground forces beat against the Gothic Line north of the Arno. Although little progress was made on the ground, the action in the Apennines tied down a large German army at a time when those troops could have been used in decisive campaigns being directed against Germany by the Allies in the west and the Russians on the east.
