Troina, August 1st, 1943: After the breathtaking pace of the sweep through the western portion of the island, the campaign for Sicily slowed to a grind for the American forces under Patton. At the beginning of August, II Corps found itself facing the 15th Panzer Grenadier Division ensconced around the town of Troina, at 1120 meters above sea level, Sicily's highest city. The 1st Infantry Division had chased the Germans since Nicosia, but now found itself facing rough terrain, enemy artillery, and minefields, as well as blown bridges and dug-in troops. Aided by the 9th Division, the Big Red One had the unenviable task of breaking through the Etna Line at Troina. [Size medium]
