AAR of Operation Battleaxe, that uses an AAR to describe how the game is played.

That's a lot of effort Norm, thanks.

Yours was a rare Allied romp. That huge roll against Point 206 on the initial attack certainly got the ball rolling, and that snake eyes by the Axis on Impulse 4 of Turn 3 was significant too.

In a stretch of five games I played between January and early June the Allies had something like a 25% success rate on their artillery calls, and their air support was often bad too.

In our games a "stock move" by the Allies is to spend the Advantage at the end of their Turn 2, Impulse 1, to declare an Axis fuel shortage. This really puts a damper on Axis offensive ambitions at least until the fuel shortage ends, which it may not.
