Task Force 45 and the Italian Campaign

Created from AAA units in order to fill a desperate need for riflemen, though it would only operate for a few months of bitter fighting, Task Force 45 must be considered to be one of the most peculiar allied fighting units of the second world war. It is history that deserves to be remembered.

  • You kind of glossed over the Japanese soldiers (American citizens), with just an offhand mention. Imagine FDR putting you in an internment camp and then sending you to Italy to fight to the death, while many soldiers hated you for being born of Japanese descent.

  • My father was in the Italian campaign. He told a story of a US mortar crew that had been through a particularly nasty fight and suffered heavy casualties but still prevailed. One of the motor teams trapped a German soldier in an open field. They were harassing him with mortar rounds, they were were really good at what they did and could put the rounds exactly where they wanted them. The German tried to surrender but the anger of battle had long boiled over and they kept tossing him around with deliberate near misses. Eventually a staff sergeant said, "Either kill him or leave him alone". The gunner dropped the next round on top of him.

  • I always find history interesting and why some events get more space and others are largely forgotten. There were so many things happening simultaneously during that war and if not taught together it’s hard understand the magnitude of what was happening. In June 1944 Rome fell The Normandy invasion. The U-505 and its enigma machine were captured And the Saipan Invasion began within a week. But another battle that is often forgotten is The Aleutians Campaign.

I recently saw in an episode of Bridgeton on Netflix a Duke shooting a live pigeon that was being thrown in the air by a servant. He yelled "Pull!" to signal the release of the pigeon. This made me look into it. I cannot find the answer aside from... Well they got it wrong. But please, educate me!

  • Really enjoy your videos -- of all subjects. When will you do a video about Robby the Robot and the B-9 robot from Lost In Space (I have seen them on your bookshelves in the background)? Most of my uncles from both my mother's and father's families served in World War II -- my father was just a year too young to join, all the rest had volunteered. I don't know all of their branches, regiments, theaters of the war but for a few. One piloted B-17s in Europe, if I recall he "re-upped" after his first 25 missions and completed a second 25 -- and survived the war (in fact all of my uncles survived). Another was in the 82nd Airborne and was dropped at/near Anzio and had a grueling time in the campaign in Italy. What is neat, and sad at the same time, what I recall in seeing them every so often while I was growing up (the families had spread out across the US, so we didn't visit often) was that the war and their service was rarely mentioned. I did some research myself as a teen and young adult on the war after hearing that they had served. I really enjoyed Ken Burns "The War" because it made me aware of what the rest of their families (my grandparents and aunts, my father and one younger uncle) all had to deal with here at home during the war. Anyway -- thank you for the time and effort that you put into these videos!

  • Hi HG!! Approaching the million mark in subs I noticed. Long over due in my opinion. They say your 1st million is the hardest. Ever heard of the chocolate bar price increase protests that occurred here in Canada in 1947..? The public was boycotting buying chocolate bars as it was seen as absurd for a chocolate bar to cost more than 5 cents. At the time it cost up to 8cents for a candy bar. Children were seen walking around with signs outside popular candy stores. I'm sure there's some history worth remembering when it comes to public perceptions to prices and its reaction when it relates to accepting new price thresholds. From wikipedia. The Candy bar protest, also known as the 5 cent chocolate war, the 5 cent war and the chocolate candy bar strike, was a short-lived 1947 protest by Canadian children over the increase in price of chocolate bars from five to eight cents.

  • HG, that was excellent! The Italian Campaign was also used for experimentation of new or improved uniforms and equipment. Also, the 442nd RCT was the most decorated regiment in WWII, The movie Go For Broke pays tribute to them. It would be interesting if you did a segment on how African-Americans were deployed during the war. It should be noted that FDR (Dem) would not de-segregate Black or Asian troops. His VP and predecessor President Harry Truman did. Also, the history of Social Security is another interesting topic. Thanks!!

  • Gen Mark Clark - *almost* as concerned with self-promotion as Patton, but without even the redeeming feature of being an average Divisional-level commander that Patton could claim to be. Both, wholly unsuited for their roles as Corps and Army commanders. There was good reason the 2nd New Zealand Division refused his orders on multiple occasions.

  • Within a broader picture of the war elements, from the first invasion of Sicily, after the successful Operation Mincemeat, convincing Hitler that there would be a major offensive in Greece, and the continued operations by the SOE there, the German defensive line had to be spread so thinly that there could be no reenforcement by the Germans into the Barbarossa campaign, or to be reassigned to fight the invasion of D Day. So the Italian campaign did serve a purpose. While Clarke ‘s taking of Rome was rather reckless, it also kept throwing curves at the German High Command. It is important to remember that Hitler was brought up within the concept that a nation was defeated if their Capitol was taken.

  • This is the sort of reason in Australia all soldiers what ever their main employment role each year undertake training in pure infantry type roles as here we life by the idea that every soldier is at heart first infantry and second what ever the army needs them to be. In my 20 years while mainly employed as a clerk, I was at various times used as an APC (M113A1) driver and crew commander, a radio operator, a general driver(wheeled vehicles) , IT specialist helping train newly qualified IT personnel in real live in the field IT where the thing is to keep stuff working in conditions no computer should survive a day let alone months at a time, as Infantry doing patrolling and road blocks and of course working as a clerk. This sort of cross training into many fields is seen as essential here as from one moment to the next you never know in battle what you may be required to do, this is also why every soldier is taught to do the job of the person t ranks higher so if you loose your platoon leaders then the most senior soldiers in the platoon can easily step up to fill the positions and maintain command and control. My own Father was in the 2/7th Division Cav during WW2 and started being sent to Egypt with them equipped with Bren Gun Carriers which some months after arrival were grounded as needing major fixes and rebuilding so they fought with what they could acquire or scrounge up, after being sent back to Australia in 1942 his regiment was retrained to fight in the jungle and sent to Port Morsby where their still grounded carriers were grouped around some trees and chained to them where they stayed till the end of the war. They were then sent over to the north coast on New Guniea where they fought at Sanananda track and later at Lae, Wewack and other places. Their units official history lists them as being officially withdrawn from Port Morsby only 6 to 8 months after arriving and of near 1000 troops that arrived officially only 60 were boarded on the ship to return to Australia due to mainly WIA and illness causalities with the KIA meaning this was all that remained. After more retraining and replacements the unit was not made into a Cav unit but a commando regt so it officially ceased to exist as a cav regt when it was withdrawn from Port Morsby though it fought through to the end of the war under the Commando title through New Guinea and Borneo.

  • My father was in coastal artillery and landed in Anzio after the breakout and was at Monte Casino. He became part of Task Force 45 and once they learned that he was an excellent mechanic, he became a motor sergeant and worked in a support role for the duration of the Task Force 45 role in the fighting. He was then assigned to the 473rd and now I know where he received his CIB. He seldom talked about the war unless prodded by his inquisitive son who followed in his footsteps as an aviation technician in Viet Nam. As a side note to this, it would have been nice if you would have included Senator Danial K. Inouyi (hawaii)who lost his arm in the fighting in Italy.
