Cross the River Moro and open the road to Ortona.**


The Road to Ortona started for the Canadians here as they took over from the weary British 78th. The 8th Army had pushed the Germans across the
Moro river. The 1st Canadian divisional commander, Chris Vokes, was signalled on December 4th to "get over the River Moro as soon as possible".
Vokes chose to cross the Moro at three points. At the modern highway 16 that ran along the coast, at the town of San Leonardo and st a village called
Villa Rogatti two miles upstream. The Hastings and Prince Edward regiment (the Hasty P's) were to establish the bridgehead on the right, the
Seaforth Highlanders of Canada in the center and the Princess Particia's Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI) on the left supported by elements of the
British 44th Royal Tank Regiment.**
Opposing them were the 200th Panzer Grenadier regiment and the 90th Panzer Grenadier regiment who had blown both the bridge at San Leonardo
and along highway 16. They had settled in for a fight.**
The divisional engineers informed their commander that it was not possible to build an assualt crossing at Villa Rogatti. Much to his chagrin when he
had handed over that part of the front to the Indians they had errected "Impossible Bridge" 3 days later.**
The Canadians would eventually cross the Moro and push into San Leonardo but not until after the Germans extracted a heavy price. The bloodiest
month in the entire Italian campaign for the Canadians was just beginning.**


This scenario is the first of a series depicting the battles in and around Ortona, a little town in Italy that ater the battle was commonly known as Little Stalingrad.**
This scenario was designed C&C Friendly, using the Low Carnage Settings 90S, 80H, 100RR, XXXTQ, 110TT, 150IT, 180AvS, 120AvA, 150SOF / Command & Ctrl ON / AutoRally OFF to reduce unrealistic SPWAW slaughter.**

Crazy Canuck for providing me with historical links about the Battle For Ortona*
Major Destruction for providing designing and historical tips*
Thanks guys!**

Have FUN!
