I want this essay to be written by a specialist academic military person?
Down below is a general idea of how this essay could be written, however this is just a guideline not necessarily to be fully followed. The most important in general that the operational level has to be defined within max of 1000 words and then analysis of the planning and prosecution of the Allies’ campaign in Sicily should be reflected to that definition.
I will expect to see a footnote or more on each new idea i.e. I don’t expect to see one page has 4 or 5 footnotes then 2 or 3 pages without any footnote.
Operation Husky (the code name of the campaign in Sicily) has lots of stuff in the planning side. However, the essay has to be balanced between planning and prosecution.
The analysis should be written in operation level so we should not be drifted into the tactical level nor to stay only on strategic level.
