Product Description

US Army, Sicily, 1943

The 2nd Armored Division provided General Patton with the strong armored shock force he needed to exploit his landings on Sicily during Operation Husky. The 2nd landed at Licata on July 11, 1943, and moved rapidly inland thanks in large part to the ineffective leadership of Hermann Goering's Panzer Division. Just before the invasion Operational Memo 34 was issued, stating that tanks should be camouflaged in either earth yellow or earth red over olive drab. The 2nd tended to use earth yellow. The fighting in North Africa had also shown that the white American star could sometimes be mistaken for a German cross at a distance, so the "Allied Star" was developed and first used in Sicily. Another unique form of identification used during Operation Husky was a pair of olive-drab pennants tied to the radio antenna.
