This study analyzes the vital importance of the Invasion of Sicily (July 9/10-August 17, 1943), codenamed Operation Husky for the Anglo-American Alliance in the Second World War. As the largest amphibious operation in the Second World War, Operation Husky stands as a significant military action which enhanced the strategic, operational and the tactical capacities of the American and British forces. Surpassing the previous victories, this experience enabled the Anglo-American Alliance to attain further victories later in Europe. However, its role has been underrated in the military historiography of the Second World War. Therefore, this thesis aims to assert its importance through a threelevel, strategic, operational and tactical analysis.
