During World War One Naples was used as a transportation for British forces. During World War Two following the landing at Salerno, Italy, Allied troops captured Naples, Italy on October 1, 1943, which was left in very poor conditions by retreating Germans. From the destruction of food factories, to polluting the water supply, to the burning of the city's archives, the Neapolitans quickly needed to rebuild the city. The U.S. Navy and Royal Navy aided the citizens and helped salvage the city, though German U-boats plagued their progress by attacking Allied shipping.
