April 1945 . Mussolini was hung by his feet, Uncle Adolf is basically defeated in his bunker and the last Nazis are already moving discreetly towards South America. Yet, an ultimate Dignitary of the Axis remains active : Picolo Cordapiano (Pianowire). Brother-in-law of the son-in-law of the mother of the Duce’s sister. He sought refuge in the Principality of Lichtenburg, between Switzerland and Austria. And there, heading the last still loyal German and Italian forces, he appointed himself supreme leader of the ‘’luminous beams’’. A last-ditch stand for a facist now on the ropes. The Yankees, who still have a war to finish in the Pacific, airdroped the 101th Airborne to clean up the area. Just be careful… the last raging madmen are always the most difficult to calm.
Scenario created by Albanrey and translated by Grougnaffe and Deepnet.

Conditions of Victory:
8 medals
6 command cards
Allies play first
The fortress objective medal is permanent. It symbolizes the neutralization of Cordapiano (Pianowire).
The bunker objective medal is temporary.

Special Rules:
Bunkers protect the Axis
All the units with the 101th badge, the Rangers and the units with a German cockade, are elite units.
There are 2 Engineer units on the Allied side.
All the Italian troops are engineer units.
when playing online, the Italians don’t have their nation’s capabilities (since they are engineers). They retreat only one hexagon per flag.
The fortress lets you ignore all the flags.

Please note that this scenario was not approved by Richard Borg or Days of Wonder, so you have to check yourself about playability, potential gaming issues, etc.
