Overview:
The Rangers had taken Gela from the surprisingly resistant Italian Coastal troops. After assessing the situation, Col. Darby organized the remaining Rangers to defend the town from counterattack. And in fact the Italian high command had ordered a counterattack to begin at 6 A.M. It was to be a combined German-Italian attack with multiple columns converging on the city from two directions.

2019-04-02(D) Tom Abromaitis vs Italian win
2018-07-13(A) Kermit Mullins vs Scott Waites Italian winThis was our second time playing this scenario. Back in 2011 I lost at the Italians. This time, I managed to win courtesy of my opponent's dice. He took out 6 of my tanks by Turn 4, but his 10-3 kill stack never rolled better than a 10. So my boys were hanging in there. Then on a +1 morale check his 10-3 rolled boxcars and then a 6. Game over. my opponent had rolled so many 12's and 11's that he had just had enough and conceded. I could hardly blame him. Getting diced by your own dice is a miserable part of the ASL experience.
2018-05-06(A) O Ramaille vs Italian winThe MR35 tanks did the job. They first resisted bazooka and AT gun fire (only 2 tanks were destroyed) and then managed to broke the manning bazooka infantry and destroyed the AT gun with a critical hit. The Italian tanks then position themselves to prevent the broken American units to rout. Darby and some rangers attacked a tank in close combat but was killed in the process (snake eyes in CC). An easy victory for the Italians.
2018-02-03(A) Tripp Killin vs Sebastian Killin Italian winWith extra troops left over from Not So Disposed, the Italians looked pretty tough through the first 3 turns. The Americans can handle any of the Italian infantry, but the 8 tanks makes moving forward very difficult. But the American 10-3 started going crazy on Turn 4, and the Italians began to crumble. Add in 6 boxcars on Italian rally attempts and the Axis forces started becoming sparse. But there just wasn't enough time to get to those last buildings near the Italian entry area. If Americans can win the first scenario (S47), this one would be very, very different.
2014-11-24(A) Martí Cabré vs Ted Kim Italian winTed pressed hard against the Italians. I used the tanks to hinder his advance but he slowly took them off with the AT gun, the bazookas and CC. The Italian fire could only break American units in the open and they are so brittle than almost all fire ended with broken units everywhere. At the end, Ted broke all the Italian units except a couple of pinned squads in the edge of the map, surrounded by a huge American force, not enough for the American win.
