The dive into Salerno ’43 continues with a playthrough of the 22 turn campaign game. Not only tasked with securing the beachheads, the Allies must break out and push northwards, looking to exit the map towards Rome. Short of a miracle, the Germans will be pushed back but they can make it costly for the Allies, fighting for every hill and mountain pass. The few large towns will also be bastions of resistance.

To prevail, the Allies will have to effectively coordinate and be relentless in keeping the Germans unbalanced while also minimizing their own casualties. The design is certainly balanced but still a tough challenge for both adversaries.
