North Africa (6mm)

The Project
This is my attempt to recreate the Desert War that ranged across Egypt, Libya and Tunisia during the early and mid part of the second world war. In particular I am focusing on the period around the middle of 1942 up to the Second Battle of El Alamein in October and November 1942. I am using the Flames of War rules with 6mm (1:285-1:300) scale models on large games tables to recreate the wide open warfare of the period.
