US Corps - Salerno Scenario Question - no POW's?

Post by demyansk » Sat Aug 01, 2020 2:33 pm

I have been playing this game since the beginning and started it up again. I am at the Salerno scenario in that you have to escort Italian POW's back to hexes with an A. While in the scenario, the dialogue box comes up to escort the pow's. However, no pow's are on the screen?

I got stopped on the outskirts of Palermo after turn 18. I still have trouble getting to these objectives in the allotted time.

What do you think?

The POWs are Aux trucks that you drive to the 'A' hexes.
You can find them by cycling through 'Next Unit'. There is one POW each in five selected flag hexes.
If you are slow in capturing those hexes moving the POWs in time can be a problem.
This scenario may have to be played more than once to figure how to get a DV.

This has to be planned well, not just played well.
There comes a time on every project when it is time to shoot the engineer and ship the damn thing.

Thanks Dal, I didn't see any trucks on the map, I am going to try again but unfortunately I don't have much prestige left.

I think there are POWs at Palermo and not at Salerno... at Palermo it works as described by dalfrede

You can reduce travel time by using trains. There is a station near the A hexes which is within walking distance.
