NotesNews: June 4: Rome fell to the Allies today with the American General Mark Clark, leading the rush to be first into the Eternal City. Rome itself is of little strategic importance, but of great psychological value... The Germans ignored Hitler's order to blow up the Tiber bridges; the city's historic sites are intact; the Vatican City is untouched, and only the railway yards seem to have suffered heavy damage from pin-point bombing attacks...
