The industrial might of the USA guaranteed production of thousands of M4 Sherman tanks, with many being given to Allies under the Lend-Lease Act. Great Britain was one major recipient of Shermans (17,184 vehicles in total). The British operated more than 5000 of these diesel-powered Sherman III tanks with 75mm guns during WWII. Many of these Shermans participated in Operation Husky, the large-scale Allied amphibious invasion of Sicily that commenced on July 9, 1943. This operation involved 160,000 Allied soldiers fighting against 300,000 Italians and 40,000 Germans. Combat lasted around six weeks, and once the large island had been captured, it offered a useful stepping stone for the invasion of Italy itself.
