What was a result of the Allied attack on Sicily?

The Allied Forces repelled the Nazis from Sicily. The townspeople gave them a big hurray. The bad part was that the Nazis got away to the main land of Italy and this forced the Allied Forces to fight those particular Nazis again. Had the Allied Forces been paying attention to the Nazis they would have tried to prevent the Nazis from escaping. Instead the Brits and the Americans were playing "I am going to beat you to the other end of the island and get those Nazis on my way there." General Patton and Field Marshal Montgomery were reprimanded for their childish behavior and allowing the Nazis to escape or rather withdraw.
