Coordination of all Allied Forces in Mediterranean countries and

defeat of Italian fascist and imperial policies are the reasons why

the Italian campaign was important. The designation references

anti-Axis operations around and in Italy from July 10, 1943 through

May 2, 1945. It therefore refers to such outcome-changing events as

the invasion of Sicily of July 9, 1943 to August 17, 1943, the

surrender of German forces in Caserta, Italy on April 29, 1945, the

termination of World War II efforts in Europe, and the victory of

the countries allied against Germany and Italy.
