Operation Shingle(Allied) 1944-01-22
In am researching with a short SE campaign in mind.
I need information on:
Axis Sqd’s, planeset and numbers.
German 10th Army vehicles types and numbers.
I also need information on the numbers of ground units available to the allied on the beach. Like Artillery, tanks and trucks.
I allready have information about Allied Air, sea and Axis unit composition.
It was just before dawn one miserable morning in black '44
When the forward commander was told to sit tight when he asked that his men be withdrawn
And the generals gave thanks that that other ranks held back the enemy tanks for a while
And the Anzio beachhead was held for the price of a few hundred ordinary lives
And kind old King George sent Mother a note when he heard that Father was gone
It was I recall in the form of a scroll with gold leaf written on
I found it one day in a drawer of old photographs hidden away
And my eyes still grow damp when I think that his majesty signed with his own rubber stamp
It was dark all around there was frost on the ground when the tigers broke free
And noone survived from the King’s fusiliers of company B
They left them behind most of them dead the rest of them dying
And that was how the hight command took my daddy from me.
When the Tigers Broke Free
Sorry, that’s about all I know.
I is quite allright Whizz.
The campaign is long gone.

If you just want the beach landings, you’ll need to find the OOBs for the Anzio scenario (IIRC, the game covered the whole Italian campaign).
This game had, I believe, the reputation for being the best researched of the whole Avalon Hill range.
