Briefing:
OK, in 1942 the Italian Army was not exactly the Wehrmacht. However, there were a few top-notch officers, and, whenever the troops were decently commanded, one could expect to be surprised. The General Peppino Mortadella was one of these rare exceptions. Nicknamed ‘’The Centurion’’, credited with his famous 13th Arabiata division and their Operation Public Housing: the nighttime capture of the pillboxes defending the Libyan border, held by the 11th US division commanded by general Dick Snakesucker. An arrogant leader who was so certain of his superiority over his adversary that he had not seen fit to take over these strategic positions. As a result, three days of fierce fighting and a one-month delay of American advance into the desert.
