BENGHAZI HANDICAP: The War in North Africa 1940-41, is the first campaign supplement for COMMAND DECISION: Test of Battle. It is a beautifully produced 170-page book, with twelve pages of color, and it is the most detailed coverage of the German, Italian, and British desert armies to date.

If you love the North Africa Campaign, then this book is definitely for you.


An overview history of the desert, with orders of battle for every critical operation from June of 1940 through December of 1941.

Special rules covering the unique aspect of the desert war – visibility in the desert, sand storms, entrenchments, tactical use of soft vehicles, and more.

Equipment charts and unit organizations for all nationalities in the desert for the period covered: German, Italian, British, Indian, Australian, New Zealand, South African, and Polish, with extensive notes on national variations in equipment and organization on a division by division basis.

Detailed divisional orders of battle for every division in North Africa, showing it components at each major battle, as well as most major attachments. German panzer division listings include the breakdown of the division component units into battle groups at critical battles.

Twelve new historical battles presented as game battles – covering the entire span of the period, from the first clash between medium tanks in Africa (Gabr el Ahmar, on 5 August 1940) to the last shots of the British pursuit following the Crusader Offensive (Chor es Sufan).

Extensive painting guides for vehicles and troops, along with two pages of color insignia, and a guide to constructing great-looking desert terrain.
