Kesselring's decision in Anzio.
In conclusion: Kesselring failed in his attempt to counterattack in Anzio, but the effort helped create a strategic stalemate that was actually a victory for the Germans. From February to May, Kesselring managed to contain the Allies both on the Gustav Line and at the Anzio beachhead. Kesselring had predicted to Hitler, during the previous debate with Rommel, that he could keep the Allies south of Rome during the winter. His efforts effectively kept the Allies well into spring. Critical decisions made in January and February regarding the Allied landings helped create successful containment in both areas.
