Anzio: The Fight for the Beachhead, 1944
Anzio is a low-complexity, two-player or solitaire game that simulates the first weeks of the battle of Anzio when Allied forces defended and attempted to expand the Anzio beachhead. The goal of the Anzio-Nettuno amphibious landings on January 22, 1944 was to outflank the German Winter Line and open the way to Rome. A major battle of World War Two, the initial landings were unopposed. Instead, the resulting fight developed to keep the beachhead.
Anzio: The Fight for the Beachhead comes in boxed, folio (poly-bag, and print-and-play formats.
