The Palace served as the hub of the Fifth Army rest center. The adjoining barracks, which lately housed Fascist airmen now provided quarters for the GI's. Operas were held in the Palace theatre, and other marble-columed rooms became servicemen's clubs.

On 29th April 1945 the German signed  the surrender to the Allies here at the Royal Palace of Caserta and Tte first Allied war crimes trial took place in the palace in 1945; German general Anton Dolster was sentenced to death and executed nearby, in Aversa.
