Starter kit scenario?: Deluxe scenario?:
With the Salerno bridgehead secure, X Corps set out for Naples. A feint was made up the mountain road to Avellino but the main thrust went through the Sorrento peninsula. A steep, heavily wooded hill known as Point 270 had to be seized. An under strength battalion of about 120 men from the 29th Panzergrenadier Regiment occupied trenches near the crest. The very steep contours of Point 270 permitted only a frontal assault. With only scattered trees and scrub on the face of 270, a daylight attack seemed ill advised. Nevertheless, at noon the Coldstream companies attacked. . .
Attacker: British (1st and 3rd Companies, 3rd Battalion Coldstream Guards)
