Shelled Hospital at Anzio

Shelled Hospital at Anzio
Here we see the aftermath of a shell hit on a hospital tent somewhere in the Anzio beachhead. The Allies were pinned into such a small area that this sort of accident was almost inevitable, and the hospital area became known as 'Hell's Half Acre'. It is unlikely that the Germans were deliberately targeting the hospital tents.
