The Siege of Tobruk lasted some 241 days from 10 April 1941 until 27 November of the same year.

His closest base of logistical support lay in the port of Tripoli, almost a thousand miles away across North Africa. Everything necessary to sustain his army in battle had to travel on a long, arduous overland trip oftentimes in the teeth of Allied air support.

Last week we discussed the trend towards overly complex PC wargames, War in the West, War in the East, and Command Modern Air/Naval Operations just to name a few. Though I acquire every single one of those monster games, I really don’t play them all that much.

Slitherine has had a punt at the fantasy game market a couple of times before with Fantasy Kommander: Eukarion Wars, Drums of War and most recently Hell.

I’m invariably impressed with the level of detail included in Frank Hunter’s Forge of Freedom and AGEOD’s Civil War II until I actually have to contend with it. I will always look back fondly on those winter days when we’d immerse ourselves in Mr. Dunnigan’s War in Euope until 2 a.m. – only to start back up again at 6 a.m. – I’m not that young anymore.
