Road To Rome
The Allied push up the boot of Italy had come to a dramatic halt outside the small Italian town of Cassino. Looming above the battlefield stood a large Benedictine monastery, which commanded the approach up the Liri Valley toward Rome. Over eight months the Allied and German armies attacked and counterattacked each other with heavy losses and little gains. Even with the landing at Anzio, where the Germans responded with a ferocious assault in a bloody but unsuccessful counterattack, little headway was made. The Allies amassed what reserves they could for a final attempt to break the deadlock at Cassino, connect with the bridgehead at Anzio, and claim the prize of Rome.

D7 Bulldozer (US610) However, it ability to perform was highly dependent on the soil conditions and due to its poor mobility had to be transported behind the frontlines via trailer. Equipped with a LeTourneau bulldozer blade or Carryall scraper, the bulldozer proved so popular that the manufacturers could barely keep up with demand.

Burying Bunkers
Tanks fitted with dozer blades sometimes simply buried bunkers rather than trying to knock them out.


Tank teams fitted with Bulldozer blades can assault a Bunker in the same way as an Infantry team. If the Bunker is a Turret, it is automatically Destroyed if hit.

Gapping Anti-tank Obstacles
Bulldozers are particularly useful for cutting tracks down into and out of anti-tank ditches and burying other types of anti-tank obstacles.


A Bulldozer can gap Barbed Wire Entanglements, Street Barricades, and Anti-tank Obstacle in the same way that a Pioneer team gaps an Obstacle. It removes the Antitank Obstacle after one success, rather than requiring six successes. Pioneer Supply vehicles do not give Bulldozers a re-roll of their Skill Test.

Gapping Rough Terrain
Especially when armoured or fitted to tanks, dozers can also be invaluable in offensives across harsh terrain.


Bulldozers can create a Slow Going gap in Difficult or Very Difficult Going (such as a Bocage Hedgerow), other than Obstacles in the same way. A successful Skill Test creates a 2”/5cm wide gap in a Linear Obstacle or a gap 2”/5cm wide by 4”/10cm long in Area Terrain that no longer requires a Bogging Check to cross.
