Abstract:

From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.

"Today the major American ground force in Europe is the Seventh Army. It is a combat-ready fighting force--with traditions and standards of which it can be proud. In telling its story, we go back to July, 1943, when the Seventh was one of the great armies formed to crack the walls of fortress Europe. Film viewers will see the Seventh born at sea, on the way to its first campaign--the invasion of the not-so-soft underbelly of Europe. Its target -- Sicily. Commanded by General Alexander M. Patch--a soldier who roamed his front lines--the Seventh anticipated the German operation "Northwind" which came on New Year's Eve, 1944, and continued for 23 days. Today, in exercises in Germany, the Seventh trains with other NATO forces. The training emphasis is on combat readiness, and the training continues in terrain and under weather conditions as rugged as any Seventh Army encountered during World War II. Today this Army stands ready--a pyramid of fighting strength--to resist aggression."--National Archives and Records Administration.
