Designer: Unknown
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Following the sinkings of a number of their merchantmen by U-boats, Brazil declared war on Germany and Italy in August 1942. A year later, after lengthy training, the Brazilain 1st Expeditionary Infantry Division arrived in Naples in mid July 1944. Put at General Crittenberger’s disposal, the Brazilian division saw heavy action during the Allied offensive to crack the Gothic Line in October and November. After pushing into the Reno Valley as part of the IV Corps advance, it attacked Monet Castello – a dominating height overlooking the vital Highway 64 – on 29 November, but suffered a bloody repulse. Crittenberger, eager to break through to Bologna before the onset of winter, ordered another attempt. In heavy fog, on 12 December, the battle-worn Brazilians set foot on the lower slopes of Monte Castello once more. . .

2019-05-04(A) Kermit Mullins vs Dan Best Brazilian winWow...tough scenario with so many nuanced things going on from Mist to level 4 to pillboxes to caves to Smoking Cobras. What a scenario!!! My Smoking Cobras pushed through the mist, climbed the heights and on Turn 5, managed to gain in improbable victory over an outstanding defense that killed a third of my force. What a game...
2012-06-12(A) Gerson Jr. Monteiro vs Bruno Nitrosso In progressFog has gone away in the first turn... The brazilians get an even tougher mission... But they are going up the hill... Not too bad... For worsening things, one of the mortar carrier half-tracks breaks the MA and is recalled...
