In January 1944, the Allies found themselves confronting the Winter Line, which prevented their passage through to Rome. In order to follow the highway to Rome between the mountains, the Allied Forces tried to reach a little town in the Cassino mountains, from which they could have a very good view and a strong defensive position. However, things did not go as planned. The Germans counter-attacked and there were numerous victims.
The Battle of Monte Cassino was a costly series of four battles, which first began on the 17th of January. The appalling terrain was a real problem for the Allied forces, who tried to push forward in these sharp mountains and large river landscapes.
This is a big month for specials, and we’re getting started soon! The Battle of Monte Cassino special will be the first of the month, and will include an improved first victory bonus. During the special, the first victory for each of your tanks will reward 3x experience, rather than the standard 2x.
We’ll have more details on the Battle of Monte Cassino special as the date draws near, so stay tuned!
