September 2007 Play It!

Armchair General

Combat! Choose the correct course of action as a U.S. combat engineer platoon tries to stop a group of Nazi panzers.

This small unit action can be recreated easily using Battlefront’s Combat Mission: Afrika Korps or their more recent Theatre of War. Join us on the website for a scenario built exclusively for this edition of Combat!

You can grab the scenario file here. Special thanks to Battlefront for designing this scenario for Armchair General.  Additional thanks to Larry Levandowski for helping playtest the scenario.

He Came to Win: Learn how Germany’s “Desert Fox” earned his famous nickname in the sands of North Africa.


For Operation Crusader there is an excellent scenario for The Operational Art of War III (Matrix Games) called "Tobruk ’41." HPS also has a Panzer Campaigns title called Tobruk ’41 which includes this battle. If you have the space, you can also get the boardgame DAK2 (Multiman Publishing) to recreate this and other North African battles.
