Western Desert Book with Special Miniature
(401010008)


When compared to the enormous campaigns waged on the Eastern Front and in Western Europe during World War II, the struggle in North Africa between the British Commonwealth and the Axis might seem an unimportant sideshow. However, its influence and impact were far-reaching and dictated many strategic decisions that influenced the course of the war.
 
This Bolt Action campaign book will focus on the conflict in the area most commonly referred to as the Western Desert - a campaign theatre reaching from the Libyan city of Tripoli to Cairo, and the Egyptian Nile valley, a distance of some 1300 miles, a featuring some of the most hostile terrains on Earth.
 
It covers a period of time from September 1940 when Mussolini's Italian Army invaded British-held Egypt to the final retreat of Rommel's Afrika Korps from Egypt during October 1942. During that period the conflict witnessed much hard fighting resulting in spectacular victories and the capture of territory, equipment and prisoners for both sides whilst also subjecting them to a series of demoralising retreats where final and irrevocable defeat seemed assured.
 
This book has 167 pages full of content, ranging from new rules and units, full-colour images, history and backgrounds and more!
 
Don't forget that our Bolt Action books come with an exclusive FREE special figure, only available through ordering direct!
 
The highly detailed metal model that comes with The Western Desert is none other than the Desert Fox himself, Erwin Rommel!

BP44 Armoured Train Locomotive

BP44 Armoured Train Locomotive
(GBX62)

includes one Armoured Locomotive.

With captured Polish and Russian trains as templates the Germans went about creating a standard model of armoured train in 1941. This was known as the BP42, and with later additions, the BP44. These new trains borrowed from the captured designs’ increased artillery capability over the existing German trains. They also overcame some of the perceived design flaws in the captured trains by splitting the artillery car in two, leaving only one gun on each car and thereby reducing loss of firepower if an artillery car was knocked out. Modern anti-aircraft guns and tank-hunter cars were also added making a formidable self-contained fighting unit.

Polish Dice Set

Polish Dice Set
(DD011)

contains 16 full-coloured Polish themed Dice.

On 1 September 1939, Hitler plunged Europe into the Second World War by invading Poland. Massively outnumbered, the Poles resolved to fight for their country, hoping in vain that the British and French would attack Germany from the West to even the odds. Germany, with five times as many modern tanks and aircraft as Poland, sliced through the Polish Army striking for Warsaw. The gallant Poles held out for three weeks after Warsaw was surrounded, fighting hard the whole time, but were eventually overwhelmed.
