    Seeking photos of the Fifth Army in Italy


      Good morning, I'm looking for pictures of the Fifth Army during the conquest of the Giogo pass (Gothic line) and the Scarperia area in Italy during  September-October 1944. Thanks.

          Dear Mr. Altera,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We also searched the National Archives Catalog for records series with photographs pertaining to the Fifth Army in the 1940s and located 24 results in the custody of various NARA units. For information about these records, please email the reference units in the contacts field of the Catalog description. There may also be additional records available from the National Archives at College Park - Still Picture (RDSS), which can be contacted via email at stillpix@nara.gov.


          Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgment as well as a substantive response to your reference request from these units. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.


          Some of our photographic holdings from World War II are already available online through the National Archives Catalog.  We searched for digitized photographs of the Fifth Army from the 1940s and located 40 results.


          You also may wish to search by other terms, such as the names of subordinate corps, divisions, regiments, etc. See our Advanced Search form and National Archives Catalog Search Tips to do your own search.


          We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
