Finally eked out a Victory as the Allies in the Olympus scenario - it's a blast, and was touch-and-go for most of the final 3 days. Numerous units got cut off from the main roads by the german advance. Anyone who plays it will be impressed by both the map and the AI's approach to your exit area.

Crim I just finished it as Germans and lost 33 to 34 (well they called it a draw), I caused 5378 casualties, 89 AFV's and 60 guns..........I lost 839 men, 13 AFV's and 14 guns and for the last 1 1/2 days had all VP hexes (I guess not long enough) and all I got was a stinkin' draw and threats of the Eastern Front from Field Marshall List !

Great scenario and map (weather sucks however if Hist weather is used )

Threats of the Eastern Front? Man...that's serious. Barbarossa doesn't even start until June 22.

ROFL. That's a great catch.

I guess it's fair - those units all ended up on the Eastern Front anyway, win lose or draw!

Yeh, yeh... but remember that the German's only went into Greece to shore up their southern flank for the invasion of the USSR. By April most of the forces that were to participate in the drive East were already near the Soviet border.

Yeah, but the Germans didn't believe there would be an Eastern front for more than 6 months, so it is not much of a threat.  Digging trenches in Libya was probably about as bad as it got at that point.
