Session #3 (4/9/12) - Turns Three and Four
By the end of Turn #4 the Allies had removed one of the German HG Armoured units in Niscemi (G) and all of the Italian units around that area except a single Napoli unit who escaped by moving North (I). This earned the Allies a further VP. Elsewhere (H) two US 2nd Armoured Units repaired the blown bridges at Licata and pushed into Canicatti (H) through Palma Di Montechiaro earning one further VP by destroying a Livorno motorised unit there. As the Axis, I was scrambling a little here having failed to recover most of my isolated units in the shrinking out-of-supply pocket (G). My unit there and the additional VP for holding Niscemi and it's airfield would be gone by Turn #5.
|End of Turn #4|
The VP marker stands at Axis 4VPs (-2VP across turns 3 & 4) An Axis sudden-death victory at the end of Turn #4 was 8VPs.
Session #4 (5/9/12) - Turns Five and Six
In Turn #5 the breakaway Allied armour unit moved from point (H) above to take point (K) below. In other advances the British Elite 51st Infantry took control of Ramacca (O), preparing for the hilly Adrano point (I) above. The most crucial part of the Allied turn though was the capturing of the airfield and German unit at Niscemi (P), worth 2VPs.
|End of Turn #5|
In Turn #6 the Allied forces advanced creating conflicts in Enna (Q) and Regalbuto (R). At Enna, two US 45th Elite Infantry engaged two Italian units, the Assietta and Livorno. I used a lot of assets to support the Italians and caused significant damage to the advancing us forces, but the area would remain contested moving into Turn #7. The British faired better in Regalbuto, forcing two Napoli infantry units to literally run for the hills. I was retreating my Axis lines for good defensive terrain.
|End of Turn #6|
The VP marker stands at Axis 3VPs (-1VP across turns 5 & 6) An Axis sudden-death victory at the end of Turn #6 was 6VPs.
Scoring so far... (Axis began with 8VPs)
