The Game Setting...and More

The Road To Monte Cassino

January 1944 The U.S. II Corps, with 34th Infantry Division under Major General Charles W. Ryder spearheading the attack and British troops (yes I know in reality they were French) on its right flank, launched an assault on Rapido valley north of Cassino and into the mountains behind with the intention of then wheeling to the left and attacking Monte Cassino from high ground.

Compounded by German minefields causing its armoured support to bog down, bad weather with little to no air support the work was hard and slow.

German corps commander von Senger of the 44 Division made sure there every inch of ground was contested, and allied forces were forced to pull back many times, his troops supported by elite SS and Gebirgsjager units were under strict orders not to retreat.


It took eight days of bloody fighting across the waterlogged ground for 34th Division to push back General Franek's 44th Infantry Division to establish a foothold in the mountains but at great cost. But the German 10th army had reserves already on route...and the battle was far from over.

Our Particular battle is taking part in bad winter conditions (hoping for snow like last year) has Units of the 34th Infantry with British Support trying to wear down the German Gebirgsjager units who are supported by SS troops.
