Allied invasion of Sicily - Wikipedia
This is the historical campaign. While most Axis units set up historically, others will set up inverted.
Monty's strong beginning quickly turned into a futile war of attrition in Eastern Sicily. Patton, meanwhile, went on a senseless goose chase in Western Sicily conquering Palermo that sent his troops away from the Germans.
As D'Este points out, a better plan would have been to follow up the invasion of Sicily with a second one in Calabria, thus bottling up the German divisions on the island. The Allies did much worse: In a masterful operation, the Germans managed to evacuate all of their forces and some Italians , with hardly any Allied intervention. Thus the title "Bitter victory", as apart from headlines and a poverty-stricken island, the Allies gained little more than experience although the subsequent landings in Italy weren't showcases for lessons learned.

Overall, an interesting well-written account of the campaign that suffers a bit from German and Italian input. D'Este's unfamiliarity with German shows, for instance, on page where he explains to his American readers that the German term for "one hell of a mess" is "Riesenauri", which is patent nonsense.
The word he probably had in mind is "Riesensauerei", one of many, many German pork-based expressions of disapproval Sauhaufen, Saustall, Schweinerei, Schweinehund, Raising pigs was big business for the sausage mad Germans. Today, incidentally, it is Denmark that rules Europe's pig production.
