Overview:
The First and Fourth Rangers, under the command of Bill Darby, landed at Maiori, west of Salerno on 9 September 1943. They then moved 10km inland to block the road to Naples. Once established in the hills, they became the major obstacle to German moves to retake Salerno from the west. Knowing that the Rangers lacked armor and heavy weapons, the XIV Panzer Corps was ordered to dislodge them.... Epilogue: German reports at the time spoke highly of the combat prowess of the Ranger Division, unaware that there were never more than three Ranger battalions involved!

Unfortunatelt for them they were broken in the next fire phase....
2017-07-08(A) Dave Mareske vs Keven Adams German win
2017-03-02(D) Tom Abromaitis vs Scott Mullins German win
2017-01-10(D) Martí Cabré vs Nicolas Sabido American winGerman attack was not concentrated enough and I could slowly retreat the rangers to the top of the hill. The panzers moved too close and I destroyed them with bazookas. Then it was three turns of maintaining the line. I ended with all the initial American units in Good Order.
