World War II Italy September 1943
With Italy's surrender to the invading American forces, the German Army prepares to launch a savage counter-attack to push the Allies back into the Mediterranean Sea.
Hitler’s officers also plan the daring airborne rescue of their Führer’s former Italian ally, Mussolini, and the capture of Pope Pius XII in Rome.
If the German forces secure the “underbelly of Europe” against the Americans, they know they may well defeat the Allied invasion of larger Europe before it ever begins.

My fellow Americans, I bring good news. Reports of the previous year have brought us a very merry Christmas. In 1942 we have struck the blow that the history books will call the turning point of this world war. In the Pacific, we have defeated a Japanese carrier group in the Battle of Midway, crippling their ability to spread throughout Asia. In the desert we have defeated the infamous Desert Fox and, with the help of the British, captured many of the daunted Afrika Korps, who were tripping over themselves to surrender before our awesome military might. Lastly our Russian allies have ripped the heart out of the German military at the Battle of Stalingrad, with the destruction of the pride of the German Wermacht, the 6th Army.
1943 will be no different of a year. In fact we have already dealt a great defeat to the Axis empire, with the defeat of the first fascist state, Italy. Now that the Italians have seen the horrors that were committed in their name by the war criminal Mussolini; they are in the process of bringing him to justice. But this will all be for not without the continued support of our brave families on the home front. Your continued efforts at rationing and your diligent work in our factories have armed and equipped this crusade for justice around the world. With your continued support of money and your young men, we will see this endeavor through to the end, the capture and trial of Adolf Hitler and the defeat of his Nazi Empire. So to that effect, I ask you to continue to join in our cause, for there is no higher cause in the American spirit than the defense of democracy against fascist tyranny. I look forward to your continued support and both my XOs, Wallace from Social Hazard and Frenchie from Team Yetti, and I take comfort in the knowledge that our victory rests in very capable hands.
General Tom "Pickle" Buxbaum, Commander Allied Forces-Italy.
