Garland, Albert: Sicily And the Surrender of Italy.v1. 17 Dec 2012
This volume describes the events surrounding the invasion of Sicily in July 1943 and the subsequent surrender of the Italian government. The book is divided into three sections. The first part sets the strategic stage by describing the debate between American and British strategists over the course of Allied operations in the Mediterranean theater during 1943. In recounting how the Allies came to agree upon the invasion of Sicily at the Casablanca Conference, the authors illustrate the difficulties of crafting grand strategy in coalition warfare. The problems of coalition warfare were not limited to the Allied side, however, and the book relates the difficulties the Axis experienced in formulating strategic plans and in defining command relationships. Part One of 'Sicily and the Surrender of Italy' concludes with an analysis of Allied plans for the invasion of Sicily, code-named Operation HUSKY, and Axis defensive measures. In doing so, the volume highlights the challenges Allied planners faced in designing what was at that time the largest amphibious landing of World War II.
This book is a project of the US Army Center for Military History and is profusely illustrated with pictures and maps. It is formatted for an 800x600 e-ink screen and is in the public domain.

Thanks for these World War II histories. I've started collecting the PDFs from the US Army Center for Military History, but it's great to get them in epub format. Hopefully there will be more on the way...
