Re: Question, Scenario #14, Anzio book, Robert Avery, help

Hiya The cutting is about in the centre of the map and cuts through the long low hill that runs left-to-right. So you have the disused railway line running along the top of the embankment left-to-right, and the road and the actual railway line running through the embankment top-to-bottom. The embank...
