Santa Agata, Sicily, August 7th 1943: The Battle of San Fratello had ebbed and flowed for a couple days now as the US 3rd Division was repulsed repeatedly by elements of the 29th Panzer Grenadiers. But August 7th saw the climax when, in the afternoon after an unsuccessful morning assault, the line began to finally crack. During the night, Task Force Bernard, made up of a reinforced battalion of the 30th Infantry, landed behind the German line at Santa Agata. This was the first US "end-run" of the German defenses on the north coast of Sicily, in the waning days of the Campaign. The move captured many Italians of the Assietta Div, who surrendered in droves, as well as 350 Germans, and a few armored vehicles that were caught behind a blown bridge. [Size small]
