I'm trying to create a couple of scenarios inspired in the fights after the US landings in Gela. The above map's only hope is to have a "flavor" of the town, because I don't have that many pictures or a decent map of the layout of the town.
Nonetheless, I find the pillboxes setup shown in the historical picture above very interesting, so the main theme of this scenario will be about neutralizing those. I know that the historical-minded gamer will point out that the whole town was taken without too much of a fight, but well, I started with the left foot with a pretend map anyway! :)
|One of the Italian pillboxes/bunkers at the north edge of Gela. That's a HMG ... and it is no slouch.|
|A birds eye view of the pillboxes in the northern edge of Gela. Yes, I went overboard with their number (5 total) and their mutually supported fields of fire.|
|A company of US Rangers will be taking care of those pillboxes.|
