By July 1943, the tides of war had turned on the Germans.
Tunisia fell in May leaving no Axis territory in North Africa. On July 5th they
had launched their last great offensive on the Russian Front at Kursk and were
nearing their farthest point of advance when the Allies struck at the "soft
underbelly" of Europe by invading Sicily.
The invading American and
British forces took 38 days to capture the island due to the skillful defense
and fighting withdrawal in some of the most difficult terrain in the war
prompting author Carlo D'Este to call this battle a "Bitter Victory".
26 historically based scenarios are included, with
several "what-if" scenarios. There are several grand historical scenarios with
the complete campaign lasting 351 turns.
