The 'Forgotten' Campaigns of World War II

The Italian and the Pacific campaigns of WWII were both longer and more bloody than the campaign in France, yet were largely treated as "backwater" campaigns by the allied high command. Without the lessons learned in the Italian Campaign, the combat experience gained, and the 'tying up' of German units that would otherwise have been available for service in France, the invasion of France might not have been successful. The war may have dragged on indefinitely, possibly even leading to a ceasefire that would have left Hitler still in power. The massive allied campaign in the Pacific not only saved much of the Far East from being under Japanese control, but also ensured that the Japs were unable to assist the Germans in any way.
