Uhmmm, maybe a retreat toward the Alps was more sensible? With a large Allied force already in Piedmont, you risk a breakthrough in the Po valley.

Well there is merit in what you say but a withdrawal to the line of the Po just means the Allied armies get a free ride up through Italy over perfect defense terrain.
If Milan can be held then it's worth going for and delaying things as long as possible.
We will see how it goes...

OPERATION SHINGLE

To update the Allies have now landed behind the German positions in Calabria with the 82nd & elements of the 101st airborne divisions. British commandos are now ashore and an amphibious landing is underway...

OPERATION SHINGLE PHASE II

GERMAN REINFORCEMENTS ARE RAILROADED SOUTH TO ESTABLISH NEW DEFENSE LINE ALONG THE OFANTO AND PROTECT THE FOGGIA AIR BASES.

BRINDISI HAS BEEN EVACUATED AFTER DESTROYING AS MUCH OF THE PORT FACILITIES AS TIME ALLOWED.

TARANTO WILL BE HELD JUST LONG ENOUGH TO COMPLETE THE DEMOLITIONS OF THE DOCKS

EASTERN FRONT [NORTH & CENTRAL] 17 OCTOBER 1943

THE BALTIC ARMIES ARE NOW FALLING BACK IN THE DIRECTION OF VELIKIYE LUKI TO AVOID ENCIRCLEMENT

HITLER LISTENS TO HIS GENERALS AND CONCEDES TO A WITHDRAWAL FROM THE VYAZMA BULGE TO MORE DEFENSIBLE POSITIONS.

HOWEVER DANGER STILL THREATENS AS THE SOVIETS STRIKE TOWARDS THE MOGILEV-SMOLENSK HIGHWAY.

31 OCTOBER 1943

IL DUCE RETURNS!

MYSTERY SURROUNDS THE WHEREABOUTS OF ITALY'S DICTATOR SINCE HIS OVERTHROWN

SOME SAY HE HAD FLED TO SWITZERLAND WITH HIS MISTRESS, OTHERS THAT HE WAS WITH HITLER AND BEING HELD IN CAPTIVITY AT THE Wolfsschanze 'WOLFS LAIR' HITLER'S EASTERN HQ

OTHERS EVEN SAID THAT HE HAD BEEN WOUNDED IN AN ASSASINATION BID BY AN ITALIAN COMMUNIST CELL ON THE ORDERS OF THE OSS

BUT HERE HE WAS BACK IN MILAN AND RE BUILDING AN EMBRYONIC FASCIST ARMY

ONLY TIME WILL TELL IF HE WILL EVER SEE ROME AGAIN...

Operation Starfish

In a risky mid winter attack Allied forces land at Salerno and catch the Germans off guard eating their Christmas Dinner- anybody & everything available is thrown in to the Beachhead before Axis forces can react.

Further north the British 1st Airbourne division is dropped around Cassino to block the roads leading south thus isolating enemy units from supply or reinforcements.

EAST FRONT 9 JANUARY 1944 - OPERATION SUVAROV CONTINUES APACE AS THE SOVIET ARMIES TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE EXTREMELY COLD CONDITIONS TO SWEEP ACROSS THE PRIPET MARSHES AND REACH THE GATES OF BREST LITOVSK.

MARSHAL RYBALKO ESTABLISHES HIS FORWARD HQ IN THE CITY OF PINSK.

THE AXIS DESPERATELY TRY TO STRING TOGETHER A DEFENSIVE FORCE TO BLOCK A BREAKTHROUGH AT THIS VITALLY CRITICAL POINT.

FURTHER EAST THE RUSSIANS PREPARE TO LAUNCH AN ALL OUT ATTACK ON SMOLENSK BUT ON A VERY NARROW FRONT - ITS RE-CAPTURE WILL HELP RAISE THE MORALE OF ALL THE SOVIET PEOPLES!

16 JANUARY 1944 - CRISES FOR ARMY GROUP CENTRE AS SOVIET BREAKTHROUGHS THREATEN THE WHOLE FRONT.

WITH SMOLENSK GONE THEN A STAGGERED WITHDRAWAL TO MORE DEFENSIBLE LINES IS THE MOST SENSIBLE OPTION.

STALIN ORDERS AN ALL OUT OFFENSIVE TO STYMIE ANY ATTEMPT BY THE FASCISTS TO FORM A NEW LINE.
