78th Infantry Division, 78th Infantry Division vs Hermann Goring Panzer Co.

Allies: 3 | BullyBeef, Kildare
Axis: 4 | zsavk


The British 78th Division has had its advance up Highway 7 near Cisterna temporarily stalled. Hopes of catching any retreating German forces were squashed when elements of the Hermann Goring Panzerkompanie sprung an ambush on their strung out column. Initial losses for the Brits are reported as heavy. It is believed that the Germans were able to catch them in a devastating hail of fire before the infantry could even get out of their transports.

However the ambush ground to a halt as British reinforcements just kept coming. With the RAF and the Royal Navy in support the two forces fought long into the eventing before both pulling back to rest.
