Panzer Grenadier: Afrika 1944

SKU: APL0891 $29.99
Shattered in the Battle of Alamein in late 1942, Germany's once-formidable Afrika Korps stumbled back from Egypt across Libya, to meet its end in Tunisia. Axis and Allied armies had surged back and forth across the Western Desert for just over two years, each time managing to recover from defeat and eventually stage a counter-offensive.

Could the stalemate have continued? This 24-scenario supplement for the Panzer Grenadier series, complete with 130 new playing pieces, tries to answer this question. Certainly each side had difficulty bringing sufficient force to bear, and both German and Italian leaders thought they could continue the war in Afrika.

Afrika 1944 is a supplement for the Panzer Grenadier system based on the potential battles of such a campaign. This module is not playable by itself, but requires ownership of An Army at Dawn, Saipan 1944, Elsenborn Ridge, Korean War: Counter Attack, Spearhead Division, Africa Orientale Italiana and Liberation 1944. There are 24 all-new scenarios included.

There are 88 new German pieces in the desert scheme, originally included in our long out-of-print DAK '44. They include Tiger, Tiger II and Panther tanks, Hetzer tank destroyers, Wespe self-propelled artillery plus the anti-tank guns, mortars and rocket launchers of Germany's 1944 arsenal. Plus 42 more giving the Royal Italian Army modern, German-designed tanks. The scenarios are completely new, organized in our story-arc format with two battle games to link them together.
