Historical Background
After the victory at Fano, Emperor Aurelian sent his troops in pursuit of the defeated Alemanni horde, which was racing back to its homeland. Aurelian had the mountain passes blocked and then proceeded to destroy almost the entire Alemanni army. Little is known about the tactical makeup of the battle, other than that the Alemmanni were trying to get away and were almost completely wiped out. The victory ended the invasion and the Roman people granted Aurelian the title Germanicus Maxiumus. But the near success of the Alemanni made Aurelian realize that Rome needed better defenses. This new, much larger set of walls encompassed all of the seven hills and became known as the “Aurelian Walls,” some of which can still be seen today.
The stage is set. The battle lines are drawn and you are in command. Can you change history?

I don't see how it is possible for the Romans to win this one.
