Commentary
A Yankee Treat for Hungry Neapolitans: Hungry Neapolitans stare amazedly as huge trays of white bread, the first seen in three years, are borne to a distribution station. The huge, round loaves were made by Italian bakers from American flour. U.S. relief officials supervised the rationing.

The main Allied effort in the west initially centered on the port of Naples. That city was selected because it was the northernmost port that could receive air cover by fighter planes flying from Sicily.
