Sardinia is an island off the coast of Italy sharing maritime borders with the French island of Corsica.


The island hosted several NATO and Italian Armed Forces base. It was for this reason the Soviet Union invaded Sardinia in hopes of crushing a potential NATO resistance after their strategic victory in the Mediterranean Sea. The Soviets were only able to occupy roughly 40% of the island as the NATO forces there poised a great resistance to the invaders.

When the war turned into the favor of the Allies, the NATO forces holding out received additional reinforcements; they were able to expel the Soviets out of the island.
