The one thing needed was a good game map-by that we mean a map we could refer to as read about Tunisia.

So we came up with a good game and a good map to compliment study of the campaign.

We also have some recommended readings. If you plan to sometime play Tunisia and wish to know about the campaign.

While Atkinson is a good stuff, we would recommend it be read last. We would you read the books in the following order.

Recommended Readings
Afrika Korps by Major K. J. Mackey, M.C.
Sicily Whose Victory? by Martin Blumenson
The Bloody Road to Tunis by David Rolf
The Tunisian Campaign by Charles Messenger
An Army at Dawn: The War in North Africa 1942-1943 by Rick Atkinson

Three out of five books are in my personal collection. Not bad!

Two are from my favorite books in my youth the Ballantine Series. Bloody Road is gnarly.
