Here's an interesting read about Operation Anvil:

https://warontherocks.com/2019/08/recalling-the-other-supreme-allied-operation-of-1944/

Since this is a wargaming site, I'd also like to raise the point that Anvil might be partially forgotten as it is so poorly present in any wargame? I mean, how do you depict an operation that was a complete success, with not much battles apart the few sieges that took place there.

And, we lot typically are quite eager history buffs as well.

There is a scenario in War In The West which depicts the operation.
