Allied force's have landed in Salerno...but I need to take Sicilia...any suggestions on how to go about this? The Festungs maybe a problem. Was wondering about a Air campaign against those sites.

Isn't Salerno a bit too far?

What about Sardinia and then after Corsica?

Yep, that's why I have a problem. I was going to hit Sicily and Sadinia the same time but I'am unsure how to approach the Invasion of Sicily-Festungs.

Well,

I usually turn around stronghold, and Sicily looks like a good one!

There could have been some actions to avoid that those annoying Festungs could be deployed there, but as it is and considering that you need:

Sicliy


or

Sardinia + Corsica

to make an end to the Italian dream,

I would go for the second option in this case.

Once Il Duce has found a new hermitage at Gran Sasso, it is quite easy to let the Italians win another war. whistle

I've read and re-read the rules I don't know how many times and missed that one little "OR" in the rules.....which makes a lot of difference on how you approach the invasion of Italy and the defense of it......Rome here I come.surprise

Thanks, Mr. E.arrrh

Well I regrouped and undid that turn.....the allieds are NOT NOW in Main Land Italy. I was able to remember their strengths and positions before the invasion.

The Brits have landed in Sardinia and by pass Sicily for now...then to Corsica. Too get Mussolini's forced retirement.whistle


Note: Also my move into Main land Italy I think was illegal....I paid(Hq AP's) for the extra range(over 5 under 10) of hexes, to the invasion site but the Marines were only Tec 2, not Tec 3.cry


Thanks Emanuelekiss
