    Resettlement of Anzio Civilians, Operation Shingle, 1944

    Dave Kerr Adventurer

      Both Carlo D'Este and Samuel Eliot Morison state that the Allies, via the Allied Military Government

      organization (AMGOT), evacuated 20,000 Italian civilians by sea from the

      Anzio Beachhead to the safety of Naples.

       

      I examined scores of War Diaries of LSTs and LCI(L)s yesterday on Fold3 and could not

      find any information on the transfer of Italian refugees from the beachhead.

       

      Does College Park have any records of the AMGOT related to this?

       

      Thank you.
