Also includes background on the invasion of Crete and the Italian campaign in East Africa.

Contained are nine army lists designed to be played with the character of the principal combatants for North Africa and Crete: the Deutsche Afrikakorps, the Italian Ariete armored division, Italian Infantry divisions to face British (and Commonwealth) armored and infantry divisions. Also, the LRDG and Auto Saharan patrols. For Crete, army lists for the 7th Flieger Division facing the Commonwealth's beleaguered defenders of the island.
