With the success of Operation Husky in 1943, Sicily was the first part of Europe to be liberated by the Allied forces. The Americans preferred a direct attack on Germany through France but agreed that an advance on Sicily might help Russia by forcing Germany to redeploy its forces. At the same time, Sicily would be a significant strategic base for any future invasion of Italy (though this was not foreseen in the immediate future). The invasion of Sicily would also serve as a kind of training exercise for the future D-Day invasion in Normandy. On the night of 9th July 1943 Operation Husky got underway.
