Beachead at Anzio

With the anniversary of the capture of Rome only a few days away I figured it would be appropriate to share a video that talked about the beachhead at Anzio and the Sitskrieg that took place there.  This video does a great job of showing how importance of digging in.  I liked how the naval guns were used to support the troops on the ground after all the naval landings had taken place.  There is some more good footage of StuGs, Marders on the move and a bunch of German guns.  Likewise, there is a bunch of Allied guns with some Shermans and at one point Churchills.  The iron sled is an interesting idea but I can understand why it didn't catch on.
