It Happened Here - Autumn 1943

October 2018

In this It Happened Here episode we are going back to the autumn of 1943 and the invasion of Italy. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill saw it as strike at the Germans via the “soft underbelly of Europe”, while our American allies saw it as a “tough old gut”.

At a strategic level the Allies may have had differing opinions but in the Intelligence War the cooperation grew closer with the increasing involvement of American personnel in the code breaking operations at GC&CS.

Bletchley Park’s resident historian Dr David Kenyon explains what they were doing both over here in the UK and over there in the United States.
