Morire in Belleza MTO (id:#57402)
Critical Hit (Aussie `98 Pack ID:PBP 22)
Designer: Gordon McClelland
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Hitler planned to attack both Yugoslavia and Greece, to secure the Axis southern flank prior to the invasion of the Soviet Union. This would also bail out the Italian armies in Albania that had been forced to retreat by a determined Greek winter offensive. Hitler urged Mussolini to take particular care of the Albanian front to prevent any link up between the Yugoslav and Greek armies. The Italian 9th Army was stationed opposite the Yugoslav frontier in expectation of just such a move, since the Italian commanders speculated the Yugoslav 3rd Army might decide on a Morire in Belleza (Death or Glory) strategy against them. The Cuneense Division was tasked with capturing the border towns to preempt any Yugoslav counter-invasion. Early on 9th, a company pushed into the northern outskirts of the town of Dibra. In the afternoon, Major Annoni personally led the assault company to seize the remaining high ground within Dibra.

Last Played:
2016-11-19(A) Jeff B vs Elmo Menon Italian winGreat scenario, though if the Italians lose their mortar early and are not able to suppress/destroy the Yugoslavian guns they could have a tough road. I was also lucky enough to still have both FTs functioning at game end (a rare feat), and they were key to paving the way. As it was I still had to sweat the Yugoslavians getting last move, and there was a fierce firefight on the hill. I could easily see this one slipping from the Italian's grasp early.
2016-08-27(A) Alberto Griffa vs Blake Ball Italian win
2015-12-08(D) Alberto Griffa vs Mario Aceto Italian win
2015-11-18(A) Andy Beaton vs John Bock Yugoslavian winItalians were diced out by turn 3
2015-05-09(A) Paolo Cariolato vs Luca Martini Italian winI diced heavily Luca on the first fire phase, my mortar placed SMOKE, CH his HMG, destoyed an HIP GUN and KIAed 1 squad. He stayed in the game because I activeted the sniper that killed the italian 8-1 and broke all the units on the attacking left flank. He conceded on turn 3 after one of the FT put two more units out of action.
