Gela, Sicily, late in the evening of July 9th 1943: The II Corps landing at the Gulf of Gela saw some of the heaviest fighting of the early days of the campaign. As fate would have it, a large part of the Herman Goering Division was stationed some 25 km in from the beachhead; it was to be the cause of some very tense moments for the Americans. D-Day as well as D+1 proved to be both crucial days on the beachhead and this scenario covers the action over the longer two day period with different victory levels assigned. [Size medium] *Edited by Foul for balanced PBEM play, the US player must hold a bridgehead at the conclusion to achieve a victory, the Axis player must prevent this, i recommend the use of the default rules plus Explicit supply and Recon spotting* *This scenario has been approved at H2H Productions*

The scenario is well balanced but suffers from an identity crisis. Is it an attack or defend mission for the Germans?
Czar
A hotly contested scenario with opportunities to win for both sides. Nicely done !
Compass Rose
A fun scenario. As the allied player, I had bad luck with the airborne drop location, so they had no effective significance.

Entertaining scenario for both sides. Allies need to push hard to secure the airfield and strong point blocking movement inland. Randomized drop zones for Allied paratroops increase replay value and frustration! Expect heavy airborne losses. Axis player must both defend and go on the attack to secure a victory. A concentrated Italian and German thrust toward Gela will play havoc with the Allied left flank and threaten the entire beachhead. Between equal skilled players - a real nail biter to the end!

One of the best and most balanced Sicily 43 scenarios. Either side (Axis or Allies) has a good chance of a victory. Lots of replay value. Highly recommended!
