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:
December 10 1943: The Allied objective in Italy was the capture of Rome. They needed to follow Highway 6, passing Monte Cassino through the Winter line to get there. To reach the Winter line Allied Forces needed to capture San Pietro Infine. This Village was located in the Mignano Valley, flanked with Monte Lungo in the South West and Monte Sammucro to the North East. A direct assault toward the village was a disaster with heavy fire from the mountains. These had to be taken first, before Rome could be reached. For the first time, Italian Forces fought with the Allies, and attacked Monte Lungo while American Rangers attacked Monte Sammucro. Only after numerous attacks and counterattacks, the mountains where captured and German forces had to retreat in order to prevent being surrounded.

The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command. The rest is history
