Operation Theseus: Gazala 1942
Publisher/Brand: VUCA Simulations
Product Code: VS007
After the Allied offensive Operation Crusader, the Axis overran Cyrenaica for a second time and prepared for the capture of Tobruk. If successful, the Axis might have the opportunity to drive to Egypt, perhaps crossing the River Nile and reaching Cairo. To prevent this, the British 8th Army established a defensive line consisting of immense minefields and fortified positions of some 43 miles (70 kms) in length.
Operation Theseus - Gazala 1942 is an operational level simulation of the Gazala battles of 1942, which took place during May and June 1942. The game is intended for two players, but is also suitable for solitaire and team play. The goal for the Axis player is to hit the Commonwealth forces hard and to seize specific victory locations, thereby opening the door to Egypt. The Commonwealth player wants to prevent this from happening, thereby eliminating the Axis potential for further offensives.
