Bases[]

The Allied Base[]

An American control point on the south of the map, to the west of the river. It spawns an artillery vehicle, a scout car, a light tank, an APC, and two stationary machine guns.

The Allied harbor[]

An American control point near the Allied Base, to the east of the river. It spawns a heavy tank, a light tank, a scout car, a level bomber (Mosquito or Bf 110), a stationary machine gun, as well as two LCVPs in the river.

The radar bunker[]

A neutral control point near the center, to the northeast of the river. It starts with two stationary MG 42, and when captured, it spawns a light tank. If the Americans capture this flag and destroy the MG 42, Brownings will spawn in their locations.

The bunker[]

A neutral control point near the center, to the southwest of the river. It starts with two stationary Brownings near the flag, and two allied anti-aircraft guns on the island in the middle of the river. If the Italians capture this flag and destroy the Brownings and anti-aircraft guns, MG 42 and Flak 38 will spawn in their location.

The Axis base[]

An Italian control point on the west of the map, to the south of the river. It spawns an artillery vehicle, a scout car, a light tank, an APC, two stationary machine guns, as well as an LCVP in the river.

The Axis train station[]

An Italian control point on the west of the map, to the north of the river. It spawns a scout car, a level bomber, a light tank, a heavy tank, a stationary machine gun and an LCVP in the river.

Outcomes[]

"Anzio was no easy win. Even though there were heavy Allied casualties from the barrage of enemy machine gun and artillery fire, the courage of the Americans ultimately led to victory at Anzio. If it weren't for the armored regiments and the infiltration tactics of the infantry, the plan known as Operation Shingle could have gone the other way. The Italians are now regrouping and establishing a second front on Italian soil."

— American Victory

"Allied command's enthusiasm for this campaign was misplaced-it was too little, too late at Anzio. The Italians had been expecting the invasion for some time and they were too well entrenched for the small Allied force to be effective. Italian artillery kept Allied forces either pinned down alive or face down dead. This is a horrible defeat for the Allies and signals a major setback for the Italian invasion."

— American Defeat

"The Allied force turned out to be no threat to the Italian firepower on the Italian beachhead of Anzio. The Americans severely underestimated the Italian fervor to repel the enemy at any cost. Gaining western footing in Italy would have given the Allied invasion the edge it needed to succeed. Berlin will be pleased to know that Italy is still well under Axis control."

— Italian Victory

"Berlin will not be pleased that the Allies took control of Anzio. Even though the Americans were pinned down on the beach, the determined ground troops somehow found a way to make it up the river. The resilience of the American army was unexpected by the Italian commanders, and Italian soldiers have reaped the consequences. With Anzio, the Americans now have control of an important position on the Italian front."

— Italian Defeat
