General Mark Clark, commander of the Fifth Army inspects 3rd Division soldiers
with General O'Daniel on the Anzio beachhead. The beachhead force was being readied for the drive to Rome. In mid-May, the American Fifth and British
Eighth armies began their second offensive against the Gustav Line in the south,
which finally broke on May 15, to begin the drive that would eventually link them
to the Anzio defenders.
