Combat Mission: Fortress Italy - Attack on Hill 1234
By Matthew Flanigan05 Dec 20120
On July 9th 1943 Allied Forces launched Operation
Huskey (The Invasion of Sicily). In just three weeks the Allies had pushed
German and Italian forces to the northern corner of Sicily, where the Axis
forces had established a defensive position called the Etna Line. On July 31st,
American forces began an assault on the center of the Etna Line at Troina.
After a week of bloody assaults the Allies broke the Axis line and by August 17th,
just over a month after the initial landings, the Allies had secured the Island.
Join Matthew Flanigan as he uses Combat Mission: Fortress Italy to recreate the
opening stages of the U.S. Army?s assaults on Troina and the Etna Line.
