THIS IS THE ORDERING PAGE FOR ATS MONTE
Years ago Tank sent over his take on the Monte Altuzzo battlefield
in the form of a giant blueprint. We’re talking almost a
quarter century ago, framing the time period. The place was the
Gothic Line, circa September 1944. As most know, we’ve done

place it all happened, and puts you into, below, and on top of
the nooks and crannies of this challenging battle environment.
The Germans held the place with a combination of crack paratroopers
… and Lithuanian soldiers, as well as StuGs. And of course,
copious supporting artillery and mortars. There will be plenty
of ‘arty shoots’ by both sides, so best get ready to
hunker down and take things one yard at a time. One knob at a
