Up the Liri Valley MTO (id:#63075)
(From The Cellar Pack #8 ID:FT213)
Designer: Lionel Colin
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Free FrenchGerman
During Operation Diadem, the 1st “Free French” Division was given the task to shield the right flank of the French Mountain Corps which was to lead the main attack into the difficult Aurunci Mountains. On 17th May, the French were progressing quickly along the Liri River valley thanks to the retreat of the German troops after the breakthrough around Monte Petrella. Around noon, the leading elements of the BM11 (March Battalion 11), abandoned by the accompanying tanks that were stopped sooner by mines, were stopped by MG fire coming from fortified houses on both sides of the road.

2018-07-19(A) Jeff B vs Magnus Rimvall Free French winThis is a very interesting scenario as far as the VCs and terrain go, but I think the Germans have an enormously tall order ahead of them. Be sure to read the article in the magazine on Board 55 as there are many nuances to the LOS.

2018-01-18(D) Stephen dedier vs Holt, Jim Free French winVery nice scenario with a lot of options. Jim played an excellent defense as the Germans thwarting my initial plan to seize victory hexes. I brought my reinforcements in through the North hoping to ensure I held the initial 3 buildings and get them on the attack against another victory hex. Conceded in the last German turn when it was clear I was not going to get more than 17VP. In the end, I don't think I was bold enough in my attack strategy and got bogged down allowing the FF to consolidate which is a fight the attacker has much less chance of winning. Lots of replay value here and I would definitely play again.
2017-12-06(A) Paolo Cariolato vs Federico Corso German winThis is a litte scenario, but it's subtle in many ways. It's all about manouver for the attacker but also for the defender. Defending the key buildings is important but not enough. I was having the upper hand on the building side, but at the hand I lost for CVP cap. Great scenario, the more I play from Mr. Colin the more I like his style. Well done Lionel.
