Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
To accompany the 142nd's push to Altaville, the U.S. 179th Regimental Combat Team had been ordered to advance to Ponte Sele up the corridor of the Serre Valley. All night their drive continued and dawn saw the weary GIs of the 1st and 3rd Battalions challenging the enemy's control of vital Highway 19. But the 179th was terribly exposed, and shortly after daybreak the danger coalesced when a sharp German counterattack by the 79th Panzergrenadier Regiment supported by armor broke through on the left and drove up the corridor to strike at the rear of the U.S. battalions. By 1100 eight panzers and a battalion of German infantry had crossed the Sele near Persano. Company C was ordered to turn and meet the threat.
