wave I picked up Fortress Italy and stated playing the game. So far, I seem to be struck on the Island of Sicily. Where does the Italy part come in ? I cant wait to begin a Armored drive on Rome. The game is intriguing as you cant blindly rush in. U end up getting Ur *&^% Kicked by a few Infantry Squads and 1 Anti Tank Gun. tanksalot

An armored drive on Rome? I prefer the elephantine approach!

Just follow the route straight over (or rather, under) the San Bernardino pass.

Continue a few miles past Locarno and soon you'll be there, beautiful Lago Maggiore... wink




Spent a couple of days with the GF there over Easter. Managed to sneak in a little WW1 fortification sight-seeting, clever me.

Didn't actually spot any US troops though. Probably still stuck on Sicily.

yep

Is Alitalia still even in existence? I thought the airline went bankrupt a few years ago?

It is. They still run daily services to and from the local airport. Not as much as they used to, but they're still there. Rumour is Air France might end up buying them...
