The Forgotten Story of Operation Anvil

Post by Gorque » 17 Aug 2019 13:03

An opinion piece by Cameron Zinsou, doctoral candidate in history at Mississippi State University.
After the success of D-Day in June 1944, the high command relented, and Anvil was back on — and so was the fight between the Americans and British. Churchill utilized the entirety of his lexicon to argue for its cancellation. With the postwar order in mind, the prime minister claimed that going ahead with Anvil, and thereby drawing more Germans away from the Eastern Front, meant that Stalin could push deeper and faster into Central Europe.
