Terry Copp Presents “The Italian Campaign: Normandy’s Long Right Flank” – A Video Lecture

In September 1943, the Allies launched the invasion of mainland Italy at Salerno (Operation Avalanche), Regio de Calbria (Operation Baytown), and Taranto (Operation Slapstick). Thus began the assault on “the soft underbelly of Europe.” In this video lecture Terry Copp discusses some of the arguments and evidence about the purpose and consequences of this controversial campaign.

Terry Copp is Professor Emeritus and Director of the Laurier Centre for Military Strategic and Disarmament Studies at Wilfrid Laurier University.
