Following the Invasion of Normandy, the fighting in Italy often disappeared from the headlines. The draftees of the 338th Infantry Regiment faced incredible obstacles and daunting terrain occupied by entrenched and determined defenders. Museum Curator Ross Patterson will discuss the fight for an Italian mountain that first cracked the Gothic Line, and how men so often overlooked earned a fearsome reputation from their adversaries.

Dinner with a Curator is an evening of dinner and history hosted by The American Sector Restaurant & Bar culinary team and The National WWII Museum professionals. Guests participate in discussion on a featured topic related to World War II, which is interpreted through the Museum's collection and a theme-inspired four-course dinner paired with beverage specials.
