Lightfoot’s Southern Assault
The third Monty’s Desert Battles scenario by Richard Marsh. Published to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Battle that marked the ‘End of the beginning’ of World War Two.
‘Lightfoot’s Southern Assault’ is the latest scenario for ‘Monty’s Desert Battles’ in pdf format only and completes our coverage of this epic battle.
It depicts the diversionary attack in the south by 7th Armoured Division during the battle of El Alamein and is a companion game to the ‘Naqb Rala’ and ‘Lightfoot’ scenarios in our ‘Monty’s Desert Battles’ book and our last pdf, ‘Lightfoot’s Left Flank’.
Play this scenario alone or combine it with the other scenarios to fight the whole of the Battle of El Alamein. An ideal club project to commemorate the 70th anniversary.
Take command of the ‘Desert Rats’ or the tough paratroopers of the Folgore Division and Ramcke Brigade.
Can 7th Armoured break through the Axis minefields and keep 21st Panzer Division pinned in the southern part of the Alamein battlefield? Or will the resolute Axis paratroops inflict enough casualties to force a Desert Rat withdrawal?
Played at the reduced divisional level RF ratio, ‘Lightfoot’s Southern Assault’, features less formidable minefield defences and a large scale tank assault, all played on a recommended 8′ x 5′ size table.
The ‘Lightfoot’s Southern Assault’ pdf includes background history, special rules, battle map, full graphic orbats for both forces and no less than 24 new photographs!
You will need a copy of ‘Monty’s Desert Battles’ to play this game.
