Rommel's Panzer Armee Afrika was running for it's life out of Egypt following it's defeat at the hands of Montgomery's 8th Army at El Alamein. Inexperienced American and British forces have landed in Morocco and Algeria as part of Operation Torch and are planning offensive drives on the few remaining Axis ports in Tunisia. The Axis forces face a difficult decision to either hold Libya or consolidate its forces in Tunisia and abandon Libya. Both sides will be challenged logistically and the German forces still pack a deadly offensive punch.

British 8th Army is very strong and highly manoeuvrable. The Axis player has to pull back to Tunisia but at the same time delay 8th Army without loosing too many units.

There are multiple winning strategies. With full Fog of War, Allies really need a good recon/intel picture. Excellent replayability with wide variation.

Correction to a previous note I made about this scenario:
It is possible to make a stand along the coast in Cyrenaica and hold Benghazi and Tolemaide with a strong enough force and close attention to maintaining supply.

Must be played with Full Fog of War to maximize the challenge and enjoyment of this scenario.
