During the landing, Rogers must destroy a line of Concertina Wire laid out by the Italians to prevent infantry from moving past the sand line. After breaking through and clearing the beach areas in the town, Roland Roger and a squad from the 1st Infantry are ordered by Lieutenant Delaney to rescue a crashed glider carrying an 82nd Airborne colonel and a small group of survivors under attack by Italian infantry and armor. A few days after wards, Rogers must defend a supply dump near the Italian village of Piano Lupo and storm the city walls of Troina. The Italian and Germans are completely cut off from the Italian mainland once Sicily is captured.
- During Operation Husky, American airborne aircraft were shot down by United States Navy guns thinking they were German planes. This caused the painting of white and black stripes on all Allied aircraft's wings and rear.
- The SAS operative assigned to extract the SAS Team in the second Call of Duty: United Offensive mission featuring Sicily is wearing the 6th Airborne Division uniform with a green beret, but wears a SAS uniform at the beginning of the operation.
