Oryon Collection ORY3011 WWII Historic Battles 4-Figure Set: "Sicily", Italy, July 1943 (1:35 Scale) "In war there is no second prize for the runner-up."
- General Omar Bradley

The Allied invasion of Sicily began on the night of the July 9th-10th, 1943, and ended August 17th in an Allied victory. The invasion of the island was codenamed Operation Husky and it launched the Italian Campaign.

Husky was the largest amphibious operation of World War II in terms of men landed on the beaches and of frontage. Strategically, the Sicilian operation achieved the goals set out for it by Allied planners. Axis air and naval forces were driven from the island; the Mediterranean sea lanes were opened and Mussolini had been toppled from power. It opened the way to the Allied invasion of Italy, which had not necessarily been seen as a follow-up to Husky.

This 4-piece figure set consists of two German soldiers from the Panzer Grenadier Division "Hermann Goring" and two US soldiers from the 1st Infantry Division ("Big Red One"). Now in stock!
