[COLOR=black]"During the [/COLOR][COLOR=black]Battle of Monte Cassino[/COLOR][COLOR=black] the 1st Fallschirmjäger Division operated as ordinary infantry. When the Allies bombed the [/COLOR][COLOR=black]Monastery of Monte Cassino[/COLOR][COLOR=black] they inadvertently created an excellent fortress of rubble. This enabled the still present Fallschirmjäger to holdout for months against repeated assaults and heavy bombardment. They were nicknamed "Green Devils" by the Allied forces for their tenacious defense, though they were finally forced out of the position by Polish and French Morrocan forces."[/COLOR] Quote from Wikipedia. Love that site!!!

Has too many armies participating in it though, but it could be sorted out, right?

Three posts in a row. Go team.

Pretty certain everyone knows about Cassino (my Grandad was actually there with the British Royal Engineers). It might get put in, but you'll have to wait for the Med Theatre to feature in FH2.

Not sure how historically accurate it would be but I would like to see one map, maybe Cassino, with [COLOR=black]Fallschirmjägers where they can choose an FG42 class, I love that gun.[/COLOR]

Cassino! Want! Despite its crappy quality, this was actually one of my fav maps in BF1942:RtR.

We should have more "fighting-for-castles-or-ruins" maps, period.
