Operation Battleaxe: Wavell vs. Rommel, 1941
Brand: Revolution Games
Product Code: REVTD001
Operation Battleaxe is a quick-playing depiction of the June 1941 Allied offensive in the North African desert. The Allies posses more tanks, including the "Queen of the Desert" the Matilda, and have mastery of the air. Crossing the Egyptian border into Libya, their mission is simple: destroy the Afrika Corp, and lift the siege of Tobruk! The Axis forces in the path of the Allied advance occupy well-prepared strongpoints, and lurking somewhere behind them are the German panzers - and Rommel, "The Desert Fox." The next three days of battle will decide the course of the war in the desert for months to come.
