Allow me to unload on this subject. The excellent and well respected General Fred Walker of the 36th ID, was hung out to dry by the underwhelming General Mark Clark. After the Rapido River fiasco, the Anzio fiasco, the Cassino fiasco, the Capture of Rome and the 10th Army escapement fiasco..... Remind you all of this preceded by the Salerno fiasco, when Clark sent in the invading 36th without prelanding bombardments so he could preform a sneak attack ??!!! Walker and his well trained troops deserved much better than to begin their initial active service under Clark. When he dismissed Walker and made him one of his scapegoats..... Just a shame.
