321st B.G. Headlines page 8 - 9 September 1943
Page eight of the 321st Bombardment Group's post-war 'Headlines' pamphlet covers the Salerno Landings, the largest (and most risky) of the three Allied invasions of southern Italy. The 321st was used to attack targets around Naples then to provide closer support to the troops struggling against German counterattacks. The photograph shows two LSTs of the type used at Salerno (although these two were probably still in US waters at the time).
This document comes from a pamphlet produced by the 321st Bombardment Group after the war, which told the story of the group's activities from 15 March 1943-15 March 1945 in the form of a newspaper.
Many thanks to Christine Stewart for sending us this document, which came from the collection of her father in law Eugene
W. Stewart, a staff sergeant in transportation with the 321st Bombardment Group.
