• BACKGROUND A general overview of the later North Africa campaign, from Gazala, through three battles at El Alamein to Operation Torch and the Allies’ attack into Tunisia. With British, American and French forces of 1st Army in the north and 8th Army pursuing Rommel’s Panzer Armee Afrika to the Mareth Line, and then beyond, in the south. This book covers the desert fighting from May 1942 to May 1943 and the Axis’ ultimate surrender in Tunisia.
• ARMY LISTS Nine army lists designed to be played with the character of the principal combatants for North Africa: the veteran Deutsche Afrikakorps for 1942 and Defenders of Tunisia for 1943, Italian armoured and infantry divisions to face British (and Commonwealth) armoured and infantry divisions. Also, for Tunisia, the first combat operations for the US 1st Armoured Division and US infantry divisions, as well as ex-Vichy French ‘March’ divisions, now turned against their former Axis allies.
• SPECIAL RULES New special rules to adapt the core Battlegroup rules to the later North African battlefields. Recreating the character of desert fighting, with its dusty conditions, reliance on tank warfare and mobile formations, and the wearing effects of the harsh conditions. Also rules for the colder, muddy, difficult hill-country of northern Tunisia, a very different type of battlefield, all helping to create games with the distinctive feel for the end of the ‘desert’ war.

Spa Dovunque 35 6 x 4 medium truck
Developed in the early 1930s the Dovunque (’go-anywhere’) truck chassis was taken into production in 1933 by FIAT’s Spa division. From 1935/36 it was made with improved design specifications (Dovunque 35), the 1933 model (2-ton capacity Dovunque 33 truck) proving too light and underpowered.
A general overview of the early North Africa campaign, from the Italian invasion of Egypt, through the long siege of Tobruk, to Operation Crusader and the Afrika Korps' counterstroke that would bring them to the Gazala Line in early 1942.
