8-11 February 1941

British armor was observed moving into our rear area apparently attempting to interfere with our supply. HQ’s orders a sweep of the British aircraft at Gasr el Arid. Fiat CR-42’s and G.50’s arrive over the base as the Hurricanes take to the air. The G.50’s engage the Hurricanes in battle causing both squadrons to abort.

We continue with the same tactic of bombardment. Another artillery barrage is ordered against elements of the 7th Armored. They are in close terrain and thus have some cover. It is not surprising that the Motorizzato Artillery fire has virtually no effect. The 12th Artillery regiment also fires on the 7th RTR Armored battalion. This has no effect. Regia Marina artillery brigade fires on the Australian 17th brigade. 2nd Support Brigade is wrecked and the Australian infantry becomes disorganized.

The Commonwealth strike back and launch an artillery barrage against the 32nd Assault battalion. Our units are disorganized. Another artillery barrage is issued against the 1st Italian Parachute battalion. These units also disorganize.

The Commonwealth ground forces attack our positions again. Australian 6th division strikes our troops east of Tobruk. The defenders gain surprise and the attack turns into a disaster for the Commonwealth forces. Preliminary reports inform us that the 7th Hussars and 6th NZ brigade are virtually eliminated.

British armor attacks our Italian paratroopers at the airbase at El Aden. In the ensuing firefight, the 1st Parachute battalion is eliminated. The artillery unit successfully retreats toward Tobruk. The KDG captures the airbase.

We didn’t have much of a response. The Regia Aeronautica bombed the Commonwealth airstrip at Gasr El Arid. A squadron made up of SM-79’s and Ca.309’s escorted by CR-42’s performed the strike. While they encountered no Flak, the Barrage also had no notable effect.

Yet another GDW game that is much more popular today. Am I surprised? No, not really.

1979. I've heard the name, and I recall others talking about this game. Don't think I ever saw or played it, though.

Book: Iron Hulls Iron Hearts: Mussolini's Elite Armoured Divisions in North Africa by Ian Walker

Still reading this book. A bit of a slow starter, but was interesting enough to get me looking for this game. I also read "Brazen Chariots" this year, which was also a good book on North Africa.

An entry in the GDW 120 Series, which had 120 counters and played in around 120 minutes. Covers the battle of Beda Fromm that took place on February 5, 1941. Opinions varied on the ability of the Italians to win the game. I'd like to find a copy of this game.

Dec. 1940 - Jan 1941, the Western Desert - the British army, for the loss of only 500 dead advanced 500 miles, destroyed the Italian 10th Army of ten divisions and took more than 130,000 prisoners plus tons of equipment.

The finale of this campaign was the battle of Beda Fomm, fought when a small British force look a short cut across the desert and blocked the coastal road ahead of the fleeing Italian army. The Italian wins by fleeing the map, but it gets harder as an enormous traffic jam of overloaded trucks piles up in front of the tiny British force.
