With a stunning map by Tim Allen and 5/8 inch square counters also by Tim, Anzio II: The Fight for the Beachhead is a work in progress due for release in December.
The Fight for the Beachhead is a solitaire or two-player game which 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.
