Description

Following the fall of Tobruk in May 1942, the Commonwealth forces in the desert struggled to reach the last real defensive position before Alexandria and halt what seemed to be an unstoppable Afrika Korps. In a series of battles stretching from June to November 1942, they first stopped the Axis offensive and then began one of their own that shattered Erwin Rommel’s legend of invincibility and drove the Germans and Italians out of Africa.

Each day is divided into four game turns. At the beginning of each day, players receive reinforcements and artillery ammunition. Players then alternate turns conducting movement, bombardments and attacks. Units that achieved breakthroughs during combat have the chance to attack again if their formation leader successfully activates them.

Scenarios include the Australian and South African spoiling attack in mid-July, the late June battle for the Mersa Matruh position where slow response almost cost the Commonwealth the bulk of the New Zealand Division, the first Axis attack on the Alamein line in early July, the last Axis attack to break the Allied line at Alam el Halfa at the end of August, Operation LIGHTFOOT: the Eighth Army’s attack against the Axis line in late October and the massive campaign from the end of June to the beginning of November 1942.

Troops fighting in the campaign include Australians, New Zealanders, South Africans, Greeks, Free French, British, Italians and Germans, with an optional U.S. Army armored division included as well.
