There are problems with this scenario: it cannot be set-up using the standard terrain tiles of Memoir '44 and the selected extensions. There are too many terrains of one or more types. Please contact the author.

Historical Background:
While British forces were unable to break through in the east of Sicily, American forces swarmed across the west of the island. The pursuit of German forces halted at the Etna line. Here, German forces had dug in to cover their retreat to the Italian mainland. The mountainous terrain gave perfect view and cover. Here, Troina was located, the place where a breakthrough had to be forced. A direct attack on Troina was impossible. The American 60th, 26th, 16th and 18e infantry divisions got the task too surround Troina and attack it. German forces fought hard with mortar fire and counterattacks with armor. Eventually, the 26th division succeeded to break through German defenses, so German troops had to retreat towards Messina.
