Historical Background:
In September 1943, the 18th Italian Infantry Regiment of Division Acqui occupied Corfu Island. As they made in Kefalonia, the Germans attacked merciless their former allies and launched Unternehmen Verrat. After a bombing of Corfu harbour by the Luftwaffe, Kampfgruppe Dodel of the 1.Gebirgs Division, coming from Igoumenista, landed in the night of 24 September on the south-west coast of Corfu, preceded by a Brandenburgers unit. After a battle against landed units, the Italians had to surrender. As in Kefalonia, the rest was a tragedy : all Italian officers were shot by the Germans.
The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn and you are in command. The rest is history.
