Description

Step into the shoes of Patton and Montgomery to lead Allied forces into Sicily in the largest Allied amphibious invasion of WWII. Choose among five historical invasion Plans, from historical to go-for-broke; invade the Italian mainland at Calabria, or even make several invasions. Only limited Axis forces oppose you but be careful. You face mobile and highly efficient German troops in some of the finest defensive terrain in Europe, and they might instead try to throw you back into the sea. The Germans successfully defended Sicily for six weeks in the face of overwhelming Allied superiority and evaded the Allied trap; can you do better?

This game features a detailed Order of Battle developed from extensive research showing paratroops for both sides, optional units that could have been present, Allied commandos, Tiger tanks, engineers, and sea and air forces. Even the Fall of Mussolini matters. Game mechanics feature amphibious invasion, uncertain units, ranged artillery, combat coordination, and defender reaction and counter-attack. And all units are rated for efficiency.
