Americans liberate Salerno
At Salerno the decision had been taken to assault without previous naval or aerial bombardment, in order to secure surprise. Tactical surprise was not achieved, as the naval commanders had predicted. As the first wave approached the shore at Paestum a loudspeaker from the landing area proclaimed in English, "Come on in and give up. We have you covered." The troops attacked nonetheless. The Germans had established artillery and machine-gun posts and scattered tanks through the landing zones which made progress difficult, but the beach areas were successfully taken. Around 0700 a concerted counterattack was made by the 16th Panzer division. It caused heavy casualties, but was beaten off with naval gunfire support. Both the British and the Americans made slow progress, and still had a 10 mile gap between them at the end of day one. They linked up by the end of day two and occupied 35-45 miles of coast line to a depth of six or seven miles. Over the 12th-14th September the Germans organised a concerted counterattack by six divisions of motorised troops, hoping to throw the Salerno beachhead into the sea before it could link with the Eighth Army. Heavy casualties were inflicted, as the Allied troops were too thinly spread to be able to resist concentrated attacks. The outermost troops were therefore withdrawn in order to reduce the perimeter. The new perimeter was held with the assistance of 4000 paratroopers from the 82nd and 509th PIB who air dropped near the hot spots, from strong naval gunfire support, and from well-served Fifth Army artillery. The German attacks reached almost to the beaches but ultimately failed.

Naples
16 September 1943 the German troops started pulling back from Salerno towards the line of the Volturno River, north of Naples. That same day, units of Fifth Army from Salerno and Eighth Army coming up through Calabria made contact to the east of the landing area. They both headed slowly north - Fifth Army on the west side of Italy and Eighth on the east. At the end of the month the Allies approached Naples.

When the train exploded and Carbone has died , Francis Andre ,in Lyons ,received on the spot a phone call from the PPF collabotationist party’s local headquarters of Marseilles . No less than Spirito himself was on the phone , ordering Andre to go to get the suitcase of Carbone who contained the famous checkbook of counterfoils from Stavisky/Prince . When Andre got on the place of the sabotaged train,the suitcase was there ,in the hands of the french police. Andre flashed his Gestapo ‘s badge and recovered the suitcase.

Virgilio Nasi, capo mafia di Trapani,


e della zona di Partinico che ha eletto il senatore della mafia, il d.c. prof. Lazzaro, vi è l'episodio veramente significativo del comizio di Mattarella a Montelepre, fatto col pieno benestare del "signore" della zona. Nel corso della stessa campagna, Mattarella si recò a Camporeale con due macchine piene di mafiosi di Castellammare. Dopo il comizio andò in chiesa e poi con tutto il codazzo in casa Vanni Sacco, dove fu festeggiato. Lo stesso itinerario seguì Bellavista che, accompagnato da Vanni Sacco e dal parroco (il quale in tempi meno leggiadri per la Dc ebbe la canonica mitragliata dai mafiosi), preceduto da musica, si recò pure in casa del "Cesare della Sicilia occidentale". Dolce corrispondenza di itinerari e di amorosi sensi tra i due manigoldi che, a vergogna della Sicilia, degnamente dividono con la carica di De Gasperi la responsabvilità del governo del paese. Il mafioso deputato d.c. Volpe rivolge addomesticate interpellanze a Marazza sui fatti della Trabonella mentre la meschina mafia delle miniere di Caltanissetta, che vive grama esistenza con l'incubo della forza e del coraggio degli zolfatari, ringalluzzisce ed appoggia le Acli-miniere care ad Alessi.

Lo spregevole ed ignorante Arcangelo Cammarata, spadroneggia nei penetrali più intimi del governo regionale, viene nominato componente, nientedimeno, del Consiglio di stato in Sicilia. Don Calò Vizzini circola per gli assessorati come un bonario gentiluomo di campagna. Bongiorno, questore mafioso d.c. dell'Assemblea regionale, se ha un occhio speciale per i mafiosi di Mussumeli, Montedoro, Campofranco, Sutera, che tanto hanno fatto per lui, distribuisce con generosa equanimità i suoi favori a tutti i mafiosi che gli si presentano.


I 110 arrestati di Vallelunga, tra i quali figurano alcuni compagni, sono stati sospettati di favoreggiamento per l'uccisione del medico Trabona e per i latitanti del paese. I trattenuti di Partinico sono una cinquantina, in massima parte parenti dei banditi. Gli arrestati di Misilmeri sono 11 vecchi mafiosi separatisti (Totò Orlando è latitante) per il sabotaggio a Risalaimi.

A S. Cipirello, arrestati Celeste, Caronno e i due Sciortino, cugini del bandito.

Bandit Giuliano’s brother in law Sciortino from S. Cipirello.

Pare che anche a Palermo gli arrestati siano numerosi; il medico Purpi e parenti di elementi sospetti di favoreggiamento per Giuliano sono tra gli arrestati. A Camporeale è stato arrestato il compagno socialista Mangiaracina, elemento pregiudicato, ma che oggi a quanto affermano i compagni di Camporeale, conduce vita onesta svolgendo attività per l'organizzazone.
