Battles in Italy is an operational wargame that takes you to three of the toughest fought battles in the Mediterranean; including the invasions of Sicily, Salerno, and Anzio.  You are given complete control of either the allies or the axis armies and must utilize strategy and tactics to overcome your opponent.  All three campaigns incorporate many new improvements and enhancements to the Decisive Battles series.  Some of these updates include rules for surrender, political units, cooperation between countries, and improved amphibious invasions!

 

The Decisive Battles Series has won a number of awards, including War Game of the Year from both Computer Gaming World and Gamespy, Editor''s Choice from PC Gamer, and The Wargamer''s Award for Excellence.  The series features an operational setting with an easy to use interface.  The game is approachable by beginners and masters with customizeable AI options to give any skill level a run for their money.  Battles in Italy comes with an extended tutorial to help new players get started.
