Mersa Matruh, June 26th 1942: Rommel was chasing the 8th Army across the desert sands he had retreated over a few months previously. Tobruk had fallen easily, after the frustration of the year before and the Allied commanders just couldn't put it all together, the chase was on. Gen. Ritchie had decided to make a stand at Mersa Matruh in order that the ground around El Alamein could be readied for defense. In reality, Rommel was almost at the end of his tether, he was using all the supplies he could capture, and his daunted Afrika Korps was getting to be quite thin on the ground. This was a desperate gamble to push the disorganized 8th Army in front of him, all the way to Alexandria, before his supplies... and men... ran out.

A difficult task for the Axis, mine fields everywhere, fatigued at the get go, under-gunned.

The Axis have to play every card right in this one to even draw

Too difficult for the Axis. I made some poor decisions which effectively ended the war in North Africa about 2 years early, but the Axis are never in this one anyway.

Very tough for Axis, but I didn't help with my blunders

The scenario reflects how things could have really gone if General Auckinlek hadn't ordered the Eighth Army to fall back to Fuka. As a result of Auchinleck’s hesitation, the British not only lost a great opportunity of destroying the Panzerarmee but suffered a serious defeat, which might easily have turned into an irretrievable disaster.

Tanks and Italian infantry always weakened compared to the real strength. German tanks almost defenseless against the Grants and Crusaders. The formidable 88 Germans inefficient against the British tanks. in my opinionScenario to be reviewed and corrected in some aspects, especially as regards the Axis forces

British Cannot defend everything or just defend where axis are weaker and exposed they must be counterattack.
