North Africa

The Complete Intelligence Handbook for Forces in
North Africa
and the Mediterranean, 1942-1943


North Africa and the Mediterranean is a 264-page hardback book containing revised and updated briefings for the major Axis and Allied forces that battled for dominance across North Africa and Italy.

North Africa and the Mediterranean provides Flames Of War players the forces needed to recreate the battles between the Allied and Axis forces across North Africa, through Tunisia, and onto Sicily and the Italian mainland.

Start with the British Eighth Army against Rommel and the Afrikakorps. Fight the battles of Gazala and Bir Hacheim. Continue on to the borders of Egypt and then fight once more across the northern shores of Africa. Fall back and defend Tunisia then counterattack and blacken the ground at Kasserine. Introduce the Tiger tank to the Allies and give the upstart Americans and veteran Tommies a taste of the German big cats and what awaits them in Europe.

Marshal your resources and land the ‘Big Red One’ and Patton  on the beaches of Sicily and race towards Messina while Monty forces his way through Catania. Face the Hermann Göring Division below the heights of Mount Etna.

The next step is Salerno and the boot of Italy. Cross the straits and begin the slow and deadly march towards Rome.  Outmanoeuvre your enemy and crush the Allied invasion of the continent.

Axis forces
 Allied forces They are all here in North Africa and the Mediterranean, looking for the right general to take command and bring the sting of battle to your game room.

The new North Africa is more than a simple update of Afrika. All the Intelligence Briefings have been updated to include the new style company platoon selection diagrams as first seen in Cobra and now included in all of our books after that.

We have also revised some of the Intelligence Briefings after further research and consideration. There are also new Intelligence Briefings filling in a few gaps.

North Africa also retains all the options for the different Commonwealth nations in the British sections. You can field Canadian, Indians, South Africans, Australians and New Zealanders. You can also field Guards, Scots and Irish as options under the British.
