Patton takes Sicily, World War II week by week

Quoting from the Thursday July 22, 1943 Telegram-Tribune:

“Lieut. Gen. George S. Patton’s Seventh Army raced virtually at will through the collapsed Axis defenses of central and western Sicily today, carrying the invasion campaign through what British military quarters called the mop-up stage in those regions.”

George S. Patton dominated headlines as well as Axis troops on Sicily in this edition from July 22, 1943.
