The latest addition to the successful Second World War Battleground Europe Series, describes the fierce campaign, codenamed INFATUATE, mounted in November 1944 to clear the way through the port of Antwerp. This was a vital task as the Allies lacked sufficient port facilities to provide for the increasing quantities of war supplies required as the advance eastwards took them closer to Germany. There was a danger of lines of communication becoming overextended.
