【 Hitting "the Soft Underbelly" 】 Prior to the massive invasion at Normandy, the Allies first set foot on European soil in their invasion of Italy, famously referred to by Winston Churchill as part of Europe's "the soft underbelly." Sherman tanks in this theater of operations often had their standard overall olive drab paint scheme overlaid with sand to create a two-tone camouflage pattern more suitable to the Mediterranean environment. This beautifully finished display model features a tank belonging to C Company of 756th Battalion fighting on the Italian front in February of 1944.
