Salerno, September 9th 1943: Historical Campaign Scenario: Operation Avalanche was an Allied attempt to outflank the German positions in southern Italy and quickly gain control of the strategic port of Naples. Coinciding with the announcement of Italy's formal surrender, the operation involved one of the largest amphibious operations to date, and the first use of a combined Anglo-American army. The Allied 5th Army began landing near Salerno, south of Naples, before dawn on September 9th 1943. This game covers those initial landings, through the German counterattacks, until September 16th, at that time the Germans began to plan their withdrawal from the area as Monty's 8th Army started to arrive from the south. This scenario has all of the historical setup and reinforcements. It begins at 0200 September 9th 1943 and ends on September 16th 1943. [Size, large]

Very enjoyable, and an excellent introduction to long campaigns without being overwhelming.

Allies should beware crossing rivers on the right.
