Nemesis: Battle of Rimini takes place during Operation Olive, set in mid-September 1944, which saw the Allies attempt to break through the German-held Gothic defensive line on the Adriatic coast.
With this offensive, the British Eighth Army would attack along the eastern coastline to draw the Germans to deploy their reserves. Later on, the US 5th Army aimed to push from Florence in central Italy towards Bologna in a bid to trap the German 10th Army.
In terrible weather conditions, the operation didn't work out as envisioned. A grueling battle developed around Rimini, severely devastating the city. The liberation of Rimini came at a high cost while the breach of the Gothic line never materialized. Nemesis: Battle of Rimini contains two new battlegroups, meticulously researched and historically accurate, with new units or variations of units.
