March on Rome - Strada Caesar / Caesar Highway
- Strada Partisan / Partisan Highway - Friday Battle & Map
- ALLIED SITUATION:
Multiple Breakthroughs have occurred along the Caesar line after the capture of Monte Cassino,
in the pursuit of the 10th German Army through the difficult terrain that is Italy. It has forced
numerous units from platoon to division to cross into and out of each other's sectors.
IV (US) Corps units in order to continue the drive northwards to Rome and maintain pressure on
the 10th German Army must pass over and through XIII (BR) Corps boundary due to impassable terrain
and an uncooperative Italian road network.
Following orders from 5th (US) Army, XIII Corps elements will effect a breech and minefield
clearing operation to allow forward movement of IV Corps units to pass through and continue its
pursuit of the enemy. XIII Corps will provide security at the breech as well a movement control
of units moving through its sector as well as route security at the breech.
IV Corps reconnaissance elements will pass through and avoid contact with enemy elements to
link up with Italian resistance groups who will path find, these lead elements back to IV Corps
zone of operations.
All follow on elements of IV Corps will pass through XIII Corps zone and attempt link up with
the tail of their reconnaissance elements. Follow on IV Corps elements will maintain a defensive
posture and if engaged by German elements will engage and destroy them as well as attempting to
continue forward offensive movement, through XIII Corps zone.
- AXIS SITUATION:
Allied forces have broken through at multiple locations across the Caesar line and have captured
Monte Cassino. Signal intelligence confirms that these breakthroughs, main objective is to capture
Rome. Forward elements of the 10th Army have been dealing with a number of probes and reconnaissance
in force operations along various route within the Armies area of responsibility.
All units of the 10th Army of are ordered to defend in depth, allowing allied units into our
defensive zone. Frustrating his movement and disrupting his timetables, we will inflict as much
damage on the enemy in men and material as possible. At the same time conserving our Soldiers
and equipment as much as possible, slowing his movement and allowing 10th Army to fall back to
the Gothic line in good order.
All units should be aware of heightened bandit activity in our rear areas, more so now due to
the enemy’s offensive action along our front. Sabotage has increased along our lines of
communication as well as in our support zones. Be aware a number of bandit couriers have been
captured in our area, signal traffic intercepted by our intelligence units has shown OSS and
SOE commandos operating in cooperation with resistance groups as well.
