Here is die news for June 9th. Determined resistance by forces defending Italy have seen the invaders paying heavily for meagre gains. Their attacks are also causing heavy suffering to the populace they claim to be “liberating”.

The troops holding the Liri Valley have withdrawn to Frosinone. Their former defensive positions had been destroyed after holding off numerous Allied assaults, which inflicted grievous casualties on the invaders. The redeployment was successfully completed, with the valiant defenders occupying freshly prepared positions.

Closer to the coast, troops have occupied positions in the hills around Sonnino, leaving Allied forces bogged down in the coastal marshes, exposed to devastating fire from our heavy guns.

Troops in positions containing the Allied bridgehead around Anzio have successfully completed a redeployment to Cisterna and Campoleone, enabling the line to be shortened and free up additional forces for further counterattacks against the Allied forces. What advances the invaders have made have only been achieved at a high cost in men and materiel.

The tactic of the forces in Italy to combine static defence with swift armoured counterattacks has been described as “highly successful” by Army Group C headquarters. “It is clear that Allied forces will not be able to sustain the heavy losses they are suffering in return for the meagre gains being made.”
