Cassino

Preview of Cassino

“To take risks is a matter of honour.” 

- Captain Bernard Brezet. French Expeditionary Corps, 1943.

The Allied push up the boot of Italy has come to a dramatic halt outside the small Italian town of Cassino. Looming above the battlefield is a large Benedictine monastery, which commands the approach up the Liri Valley toward Rome.

Forces in Cassino
In Cassino you can spearhead the Allied assault or take up positions in along the tough German defensive lines. Take command as the Goums, Nisei, US cavalry, Indians or New Zealanders and push the Germans out of the way and march on Rome. Or lead the tough German paratroopers, grenadiers and Panzergrenadiers to repel everything the Allies throw at you.
