    On the 20th of this month a force of I.700 U.S. Marines and 600 British Royal Marine Commandos staged an invasion of the island of Sardinia. The operation began at 7 am with a force of 46 British, U.S. and Italian warships converging on the southern tip of Sardinia. The men taking part in the operation stormed ashore at Porto Teulada.
