Here is an AAR of a game I recently played against a customer.
He chose the Israeli's in an assault against the Egyptian positions at Umm Katef in 1948. Here is the introduction.
Last Bastion - Umm Qatef 1948
27 December, 1948
[Umm Qatef Ridge, Sinai, Egypt]: [SIDE A][HIS][CSL]: After the
successful assault on El Ajua, defeating the Egyptian 1st Battalion,
elements of the Negev Brigade were poised to advance into the
Sinai and capture Abu Ageila which was intended to be used as
a springboard to capture El Arish, the Egyptian primary base
of operations. Forward elements ran into Egyptian positions around
Umm Qatef, a ridge crossing the avenue of approach, losing a
few vehicles to the anti-tank guns on the position. Negev's 7th
Battalion was hastily organized to assault the position as the
morning sun rose. Once this last bastion was cleared, the Sinai
would be open for the taking. [ALL: NOVV]][NONE] [1.00]
The scenario is designed to be played against an Egyptian AI, but I will see what I can do!
