BKC Aegean Campaign Turn Five
It's time for Turn 5 in the on-going and highly entertaining club BKC campaign. This turn, the Italians under General Robusto Gorgonzola have a big battle to win against the perfidious British on the war torn island of Mikonos. In the previous turn, both sides launched an amphibious invasion of the island and fought each other to a stand still, with the Italians firmly in control of their objectives by night fall.
To ensure complete victory this turn, I've chucked the proverbial kitchen sink into the struggle for Mikonos, making use of armoured reinforcements via the docks, air strikes from fighter bombers sent in to fly from the airstrip and an elite naval special forces recce team, who will be landed by submarine to act as spotters for my warships deployed offshore. They'll also blow things up and cause chaos behind enemy lines, if I can get away with it.
Meanwhile, I've left my paratroopers to dig in on the island adjacent to Paros, scene of so much spectacular destruction last turn. The plan is to keep them there as a blockading force until the Soviets whither on the vine or are wiped out by my allies. I have ordered the commander of the para company in residence to raise the Italian flag and claim the liberation of Paros, with full press coverage and the propaganda section on over time, so that I can claim all the glory before my allies get there first.
...at least it'll look good if it all goes pear shaped on Mikonos!
