Grumble Jones March Scenario - GJ043 - Smoking Cobras

This month's Grumble Jones scenario pays homage to the Forca Expedicionario Brasileira (FEB), which represented Brazil's contribution to the war against Nazi Germany. The FEB would serve with distinction in the Italian Campaign. And by the end of the war would accept the surrender of the German 148th Infantry Division. It would be the only surrender in that theater of an intact German division. 

The nickname for the Brazilians was the Smoking Snakes or Smoking Cobras.  These men would go on to become outstanding soldiers and gain the pride and admiration of all Brazilians upon their return from Europe.

  this is a great link to learn a bit more about the FEB.

The FEB accepts the surrender of the German 148th Infantry Division.

This month's scenario depicts the actions of the FEB during its 4 day fight to take control of the Italian town of Montese.

Hopefully this scenario captures the intensity of the close in fighting the Brazilians were engaged in during the struggle for Montese.
As always these monthly "Basement Quality" Scenarios are offered for fun only and as a thank you to the readers of this blog.
