The Allies claimed victory in North Africa on May 13th, 1943, when a huge swatch of German and Italian soldiers surrendered at Tunisia. Allied leaders found themselves at a great cross roads, the results of which would turn out to be one of the turning points of the war. Should they relocate their Mediterranean forces north to prepare for the coming invasion of Europe from the English channel? Or should they march north into Italy to dislodge the fascist dictator Mussolini from power? Churchill referred to Italy as "the soft underbelly of Europe" for its vulnerability and strategic importance. After much deliberation, they chose to invade the peninsula, and the rest was history.
In a stroke of brilliance, Allied forces sent the body of a dead man into enemy waters, knowing he would soon be discovered. Attached to him were elaborate plans to invade Sardinia and Corsica. These plans reached all the way up to the Fuhrer himself, who subsequently drew a hefty portion of soldiers to garrison those fronts. Despite this genius tactic, the fighting was long and hard. The Allies were able to effectively claim victory on July 24th, with the deposition of fascist Prime Minister Benito Mussolini. Still, the actual losses for the Axis fighters was relatively minimal. Axis fighters retreated inland to regroup, and would later reemerge as a force yet to be reckoned with.
