Description Edit | History

The Allied invasion of Sicily in mid May, 1943. The attempted lightning capture of the southernmost bastion of an increasingly embattled Festung Europa. Where the Allied forces undertook the first amphibious assault against Nazi-dominated Europe, and where the greatly outnumbered Axis forces conducted one of the most brilliant rearguard actions of modern times.

There is the regular campaign game, a variable campaign game and a short scenario on just the U.S. landings to get a feel for the gameplay. Units are generally battalion and regiment size.
