Historical Background:
28th of October 1940.
Infantrymen of Italian "Ferrara Division, supported by some L3/35 light tanks, assaulted Perati Bridge on Vioussa river at the border between Albany and Greece. The Italian column captured the bridge but its advance was quickly delayed by bad weather conditions and hard resistance of Greek troops. Greek artillery had a better range than the Italian one, so Italian were not able to make counter-battery fire. The advance of Mussolini's troops became quickly a failure everywhere on the Albanian front and from 04th of November, Greeks launched counter-offensive.
The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command. The rest is history.
