Abstract:

The combined joint operation in connection with the amphibious landing at Anzio is analyzed by comparing todays concept of operational art with the operational designs and operational plans of the Allied forces of 1944. The military actions are examined to determine the operational failures and to validate current combined joint operational principles. The principle finding in examining the planning and execution by the Allied forces is that inadequate logistical capability complicated operational planning, compromised operational principles and limited force effectiveness in attaining the objective.
