Bazooka Armed Artillery Jeep - Anzio 1944 & Italian Campaign/Anzio Infantry Tactics - 1943 & 1944

The attached 1944 report is an Army interview with an Infantry Lieutenant who served through the Sicily, Italian and Anzio campaigns. He provides several interesting comments about the American, British and Germany tactics and weapons.

The multiple bazooka armed jeep is a design he originated and used for short range nighttime harassing fire.

The first attachment is a separate description of the bazooka armed jeep. The following attachments consists of the entire report. The scanned version of original report has faded text and may be a bit difficult to read. This problem can be overcome by enlarging the attachments.

I will place a duplicate of this report in the site’s ‘WW2 In Africa & the Mediterranean’ section.
