About this title

Synopsis:

From the Sangro River on the eastern (Adriatic) coast, through the Appenine Mountains to the Garrigliano River on the western (Tyrrhenian Sea) coast, the Gustav Line was a combination of concrete bunkers set into rugged terrain. There was no way to outflank the Gustav Line, and the most direct route of attack was up Route Six to Rome, via the town of Cassino.

Yet Cassino was fortified, lay behind the Rapido River, and was in turn overlooked by Monte Cassino, crowned by a castle and monastery. As one US general said of this part of Italy, "behind every hill there's another river, and behind every river, there's another hill."

The fate of Cassino is in your hands. Will it fall and open the road to Rome to the Allies, or will the Germans continue to hold against the onslaught?

Inside you will find:

  • The history of the bloody fight for Cassino and the road to Rome.
  • History and tactics of the Moroccan Goums, the Nisei(Japanese-Americans), the 91st Cavalry Reconnaissance Squadron, the 4th & 8th Indian Division, and the 2nd New Zealand Division.
  • The option to field a Goum or Nisei Rifle Companies, a Dismount Cavalry Squadron, and Indian or New Zealand rifle companies.
  • History and tactics of the 1. Fallschirmjager Division, the 44. Reichsgrenadierdivision Hoch und Deutschmeister, and the 90. 'Sardinien' Panzergrenadierdivision.
  • The option to field a fallschirmjagerkompanie, a Reichsgrenadierkompanie, and a Panzergrendierkompanie.
  • Introducing Infantry Aces, the brand new escalation campaign system where you will fight for victory and glory with the heroes of Cassino.
  • Inspirational color photos.
