In the early months of 1943, the United States and British Commonwealth forces had finally defeated Rommel and the axis armies of North Africa. The allied leaders were in disagreement on what the next step should be; invade Italy, the Balkans, or France. Stalin was desperate to open another front in Europe. Churchill wanted to invade Italy which he labeled “the soft underbelly of the axis”. It was agreed that since no invasion of Northern France could be undertaken in 1943, that the invasion of Sicily would take place. The allied commanders were sure that invading Italy would all but destroy the Italians will to fight, and maybe the government and Mussolini would be overthrown.

The German high command was also aware that Italy’s support for the war was dwindling. German units that were needed for the Eastern front were sent to Italy to help defend against an allied attack and to police the Italian army in case of a coup. With most of Germany’s army and supplies on the Eastern front and a weakening ally in Italy, Germany is desperate to keep the allies out of Southern Europe.

The Invasion of Italy is an Axis&Allies style game that puts you in the seat of the axis commanders who are racing to get their army into a position to defend Southern Europe, and allied commanders who are ready to open another front in Europe to relieve the Russians on the Eastern front. Will you follow history as the allies and invade Sicily and then Italy, or will you try to take Rome first and severe the axis army in Europe? Can the axis hold out long enough with their limited supplies, or will Italy fall and leave Germany defending Italy…..ALONE?

Mama mia!
This is an amazing map of the Italian peninsula and immediately surrounding area and a "must have" for anyone interested in the Italian campaign of the Second World War. There is plenty of detail, and the addition of airbases and naval bases on the map is a very nice touch. My only criticism is that there are so many sea zones, but I've made an adaptation to the rules that these largely apply to air units (sea units have unlimited movement, due to the smaller scale of this game, as opposed to the global or theater Axis & Allies games). All in all, very beautifully done map! Just writing this review, I can't wait to play again!
