Epsom, UK – March 27, 2013 –  Slitherine ( www.slitherine.com) is proud to announce the release of the long-anticipated Battle Academy: Operation Husky . After turning the iOS wargaming market upside down with its revolutionary gameplay system,  the acclaimed Battle Academy series is back with this latest add-on.

The new expansion covers the Allied invasion of Sicily, codenamed Operation Husky, which began on the night of 9–10 July 1943, and ended 17 August, adding extra Axis and Allies units and a brand new Sicilian terrain set.

This large scale amphibious and airborne operation opened the way to the combat in the hot and dry Sicilian landscape and the Invasion of Italy by the Allied forces. The principle units involved belonged to the 7th U.S. Army under the command of General George S. Patton and the British 8th Army under General Bernard Law Montgomery, gathered in the 15th Army Group, under the responsibility of the British General Harold Alexander.
