OverlaySicily, Italy – Operation Husky

Original image caption:

Air Forces shows part of the southeastern Sicilian coast, the day the Allies invaded. Scores of our boats can be seen, mostly transports and landing craft. The smaller craft, darting speedily among the large ships (indicated by their white wakes) , are probably PT boats and unloading craft. In bay on the right LCT boats for unloading tanks are discernible at the beach. Explosions in the water may be seen nearby. Note airplane near this beach, and another at the mouth of the bay. Shellbursts from land batteries can also be seen near the transports lying offshore.
