Hello to all.
I dusted off this nice game, waiting for a game with some friends.
I looked at the rules of version 7 and attachments scenarios, particularly Gothic Line.

I believe that the scenario is not accurate.
The Gothic Line, in September 1944, ran from Pesaro to Pisa and not from Ravenna to Pisa. The line in Ravenna was in fact named Genghis Kan Line and is relative to December 1944 period.

At this link, the situation is clear:



This photo depicts the set up as per scenario:



In the day I will send a new image that on the contrary, represents the Gothic Line in September 1944. I have used the forces indicate the authors, in any case.

I hope this will be useful.

Carlo did the observation on my game No Retreat 4! Italian Front: 1943-45...

It seems we both did the same "Error". Personally I still think that "Gothic Line" is not such a misnomer, since there was still parts of that Line relatively close to the front in 1945, and the fight was a continuation of the Gothic Line early battles, plus this was really the last serious Fortified line the Allies encountered in Italy.

BTW Carlo, how is your "real" Gothic line scenatio-making going? Can't wait to give it a try.

This is' a hypothesis of the Gothic Line, which corresponds to September 1943.

But......., in practice I used the pieces of published scenario. It does not change anything except the period: III September 1944 - I December 1944, 11 rounds.

Victory conditions:
The allied must to have control of Bologna.
