There are problems with this scenario: it cannot be set-up using the standard terrain tiles of Memoir '44 and the selected extensions. There are too many terrains of one or more types. Please contact the author.

Briefing:
Olaf Sesclaf (Olaf Guffaws). This General was behind the Africa Korps’ last-ditch stand before her May 43 surrender. This was the famous helping hand the Allies called ‘’The water leak ‘’. At that time, this smelled like a burnt caterpillar to the Krauts. Rommel had cleared off to do some masonry work on the Atlantic coast and the Allies thought they had, at last, full control of the whole operational theater. All ? No. One bloody corridor was forgotten by the British, and this is where Sesclaf had managed to gather and hide all his remnant troops. The objective was to launch a counter-attack with the goal of causing maximum losses to the enemy and therefore delaying the landings in Italy.The plan was simple. On the D-day, the Germans would sweep through the corridor upon the British, like a slow water leak that spreads out destroying everything in its path. When the second British Corps saw itself cut in three parts and terribly overstretched at tea time by this sly German maneuver, the mustachioed General Lord Plumber was not amused. He put down his cup of Darjeeling and said, ‘’Be so kind as to mop up these German puddles, Gentlemen! And seal this leak too, otherwise Monty will once again become quite distressed.’’ With that the Plumber resumed his afternoon snack of ginger scones.
Scenario by Didji. Translation Grougnaffe and Deepnet.

Conditions of Victory:
8 medals
6 command cards
Allies play first
The edge of the board opposite to the Axis is an entire Exit. Each German unit that exits the board by this edge wins a permanent medal. This represents a unit that circumvented the British.
The hexagon located behind the impassible mountains is an exit. Each Allied unit that exits the board from this hexagon wins a permanent medal. This represents a unit that has taken control of the corridor.

Special Rules:
North African desert rules active. British tanks move only two hexagons. But their armored units may still overrun after an attack.
British phlegm rule applies (Stiff Upper Lip, single figure counter attack).
Artillery can fire on a unit that is located in a wadi only if it located on an adjacent hexagon.

Warning:
Please note that this scenario was not approved by Richard Borg or Days of Wonder, so you have to check yourself about playability, potential gaming issues, etc.
