Taking place between 17 January and 19 May 1944, the Battle of Monte Cassino was a costly Allied campaign to break through the German Winter Line bisecting Italy in order to seize Rome. In total, 54,000 Allied and 20,000 German casualties were suffered in a series of four distinct battles. Early on, the Americans controversially bombed the famous abbey perched high above the town of Monte Cassino. Interestingly, the ruins were only occupied two days later by German paratroops of the 1st Parachute Division and who turned them into a fortress.
Dragon is releasing its popular figure set of Fallschirmjager figures fighting in Monte Cassino into a Premium Edition. This classic four-figure set in action poses hase been improved to meet the standards of discerning modelers of today. The set now includes beautifully molded Gen2 gear and weapons such as a brand new-tooled FG-42 in Gen2 standard. With all these improvements and enhancements, this Premium Edition set of German paratroopers grimly defending the rubble of Monte Cassino is destined to become another modern-day classic!
