A Raiding Escalation Campaign in the Sahara, 1941-43
The Saharan Campaign, 1941-43
The war in the deep desert was fought in three essential stages. The first was a struggle to secure the precious few oases in the deep southern desert. From these bases the raiders could then establish forward bases in the second phase of the war closer to the coastline. In the third and final stage of the campaign, the special forces in the desert fought a brilliant series of raids that paralysed supply and communication lines along the Mediterranean coast.
In Raiding Aces, you will dive straight into this war. Not only will you have to confront the enemy, but face the Sahara itself as you fight from watering hole to watering hole in order to launch your campaign of havoc upon the supply lines.
Remember, in the desert the motto is, who dares wins!
