Battle for Spilamberto
April 12th 1945
Allied forces are advancing towards Bologna, Reports are coming in of a small German Zug holed up in Spilamberto, who are starting to fortify and booby-trap the area.
To keep the advance flowing 2 Squads from the 109th engineers are sent ahead to overcome the Germans and make the area safe.
The Intel was wrong. Expecting only light resistance the Americans found out there was 2 full zugs dug in and had heavily booby trapped the area and were not prepared to give way.
With no support close by and limited ammo the Americans advanced towards Spilamberto.
This is a small game run at Fireball squadron Birmingham,
