NETTUNO

The 3rd Division's landing zone was south of Anzio-Nettuno on a long 15-mile stretch
of open, unpopulated beachfront. The British landing zone was north of Anzio
while U.S. Ranger battalions and parachute regiments were tasked
with securing the two ports with the 45th Division and special regiment
of the 1st Armored Division as the second wave. This photo was taken
on D-Day, January 22, 1944.
