The Mareth Line - a new Campaign Book for you! Mon, 21 February 2022 18:53
Hi everyone,

I've just finished my next campaign booklet. Find the PDF here:

'The Mareth Line - The End for the Afrika Korps'.

https://cf.geekdo-images.com/yFWvdH8ZlfykrRPnm0grXg__large/img/Nef8-R5bqvQAI51mM7nw621Nh-A=/fit-in/1024x1024/filters:no_upscale():strip_icc()/pic6712350.jpg

It's five scenarios, including a Breakthrough, with special campaign rules, 'What If?' event rolls, score sheets and more. It also makes use of the excellent Fuel Supply rules created by the M44 Brigade for the 2019 Dutch Open to add some extra complications to your plans in the desert.

The campaign takes place in Tunisia after the major success of Alamein. It was always going to be over for the Axis forces after that but this chapter of history takes you through the final battles, including Rommel's last offensive in North Africa and brutal battles along the natural defensive lines made by the wadis and ridges of Tunisia that denied the Allies the quick final blow they wanted in order to shift their focus and supplies to the upcoming invasion of Sicily. Montgomery would suffer some dents to his pride here while the American forces would be keen to make up for the losses their green troops had suffered earlier.

You'll need the Mediterranean Theatre and Terrain Pack for the terrain tiles and a Breakthrough board for scenario 4.

You can also find all six of my campaign booklet PDFs here:

Enjoy, everyone. I think it's turned out well from all the play testing we have done. Special shout out to BGG user PhAB for helping edit this too and ridding my work of the millions of typos I so lazily fill my work with!

Have fun. Always love to hear battle reports or feedback!

Nice campaign Sam.All infantry may retreat 1-3 hexes. Does this mean all Axis infantry units are Italian, apart from those marked as German, or does it apply to both?

This is just a rule for this campaign specifically as the Axis forces are constantly pulling back to new defensive lines at this time so it doesn't denote German/Italian nations, it is just for all Axis infantry regardless.

Awesome! So glad someone finally did a North Africa Campaign. Shocked that the Campaign books doesn't have anything on North Africa!
