Assault wave, Salerno. Allied troops pour ashore at Salerno, wading through the surf under heavy machine gun and shell fire from hidden enemy positions back of the beaches. One of the landing craft is set aflame by an enemy shell. Another shell just misses an LCVP (landing craft, vehicle personnel) and sends up a plume of smoke and water. Allied cruisers come in close to shore to blast the enemy whose positions are relayed by naval spotters advancing with the landing parties
