March On Rome - Event Description

Background


After the fall of Monte Cassino Alexander finally has enough reinforcements to have numerical superiority over Kesselring. Since the Gustav line in Italy depended upon Monte Cassino as its key defensive point once Cassino was overrun the Allies could drive up Highway 6 to Rome.

Forces landed at Anzio were meant to drive into the Alban Hills cutting the Tenth Army's lines of communications and force Kesselring to withdraw North of Rome. They've been penned at Anzio, now they can move.

The British Eighth Army will attack up Highway 6 toward Valmontone, the Fifth Army attacks out of the Anzio beachhead. The objectives are to drive the Germans back; smashing through the Hitler line from Terracina to Piedimonte and the Caesar Line in the Alban Hills. The initial American, French and British attack is a surprise and makes gains against stiffening resistance.

Outline


A hilly ridge crest road makes its way from near the fort through ravines, wooded areas and gullies. This terrain maps well to the hills along Highway 6 South of Rome.
It is ideal for defensive fighting and allows great tactical flexibility and covered flanking maneuvering.

German forces will work a fighting retreat along the road using temporary fixed and ambush positions. Mines and anti armour weapons can be deployed. Allied forces are free to maneuver in any manner fitting to push the Germans or flank and attack.

If you are going to March On Rome II use this link to print a Medical Card! As a former U.S. Marine and MOR 1st Sgt. I dont want to guess at getting you the proper medical treatment in the field, theres no time for guessing out there. This is the first thing that I will instruct company medics to look for. If you dont want to use this .pdf have some kind of medical card on your person. Get it done its not an option! Keep it on your person at all times. That's an order!

See you on the battle field!
