Wondering if there is any interest in a historical study centered on the 442nd RCT in Italy in July 1944?

I've got some material and an awesome situation where the Germans were fighting from caves. I think it can be greatly expanded, but wondered if there was any interest?

Could be a good thing with a extra map for the caves.
How big is it ?
Brian, I would be interested. Its ASL stuff, right?
Curious Brian...for the US MMC counters, did you plan on using the normal 6-6-6 1st line, or add in a mix of 6-6-6 and 6-6-7's? Having read the book last year, "Just Americans" which deals with the 100th and the 442 RCT, I found it interesting that both were considered "unruly" and pretty green in their initiation to combat...but more than proved their valor as situations arose. Perhaps a few 2nd Line MMC in there too? Did you plan any mini-CG for this? If so, it would be very interesting to see how you portray these units. BI would probably not apply (not that ANYONE uses that in their play) but these guys got tougher as losses mounted and situations got desperate. Also, re: Caves...would need to add in a historical SSR that allows nationalities other than Japanese to use Caves...the way the rules are written now it would not be possible for the Germans to enter/set up in Caves. IIRC, in Italy it was the 100th Battalion...the 442nd took those survivors and the combined unit fought in southern France...but my memory could be faulty...it usually is, so don't quote me on that one.
I was planning on a mixed OB..including 2nd line and green squads to reflect the actual nature of the unit...
