Slouch Hats & Eggshells: The Allied Invasion of Syria & Lebanon–1941
Publisher/Brand: Legion Wargames
Product Code: LWG1101
Slouch Hats and Eggshells recreates the World War II campaign in French-held Syria and Lebanon, from early June 1941 through mid-July 1941. One player controls the Axis forces comprised of Vichy French, French Colonial, and German troops, and one player controls the Allied forces of British, Australian, and Free French troops.
As the Allied player you will have to fight an aggressive battle against a formidable defensive opponent. As the Axis player you will have to use every unit available to keep the Allies from breaking through what appears to be a very fragile eggshell defense. In addition, both players will have to deal with a shortage of supplies and fuel which can stall an ill planned offensive strike or cripple an otherwise solid defensive stand.
