    Description

    The Allied invasion of Sicily in July 1943 essentially involved a race as to which force, British or American, would first take the port of Messina. The British forces landing near Syracuse had the shortest path, but that way was beset with numerous rivers that ran west to east and were easily defended. British airborne troops were given the task of taking the most heavily defended river position, the Primosole Bridge over the Simeto River in an attack dubbed "Operation Fustian". Unbeknownst to the Allies the Germans also rushed airborne troops to help secure the position along with the Italian garrison. One of most costly and violent battles of the Sicilian campaign would be fought here. Can you do as well or better than your opponent?
