This may already be known to many, but just now it was found by me.
Almost all of the Army's history on the Second Wordl War is now available as downloads.
http://www.history.army.mil/books/wwii/anziobeach/anzio-fm.htm    Here is a link to the Anzio operation.

For those interested in WWII, or the US Army's operations, this is a goldmine.  Not written by staff officers with an agenda, but by professional historians, mostly finished by 1950.  It's free, and probably has some things that have been reevaluated over time.  But what a great resource.  Very highly recommended.

That is an absolute gem of a find, bes. I can see I'll be spending a lot of time on there. Thanks for posting that.

Martok:
Thanks for the link, besilarius.  Very cool. 

Jack Nastyface:
FYI...The USAF library is located here... http://www.afhra.af.mil/index.asp

You have to dig to find some of the interesting stuff, like the Studies link, but lots of good stuff.

The USN library is here...also good, but I don't see a .pdf section for downloads, only an online reading section...http://www.history.navy.mil/library/index.htm

Gusington:
Thank you Bes, that is fantastic.
