The great thing about this scenario as the Germans is it really puts a strain on you, its like holding back a large water balloon and you know its just going to break somewhere and you stuff the cracks with all you got (I'll provide insight as to why I think I holding back Tyrone and causing casualties later, if I remember). Good fun scenario, however the experienced TOAW fellow should take the Axis. You'll have to have (what we call in ASL world) a high personal morale to take the beating your going to get, lol.

IMO

Some more strain for you to deal with !

Finally got rid of the two pockets, though the remnants of the infantry retreated back to their own lines.
I can't do anything to break through the entrenched main line, maybe I should be lining up some fresh units and trying to attack with them but would take several moves to organise.

Breakout through the gap expands and I think the Southern half of the Africa Corps should be very short of supplies, if they are getting any.

I just conceded on this scenario on turn 11. Tyrone did an excellent job of busting open the right flank and eating up all my units.

What makes this game exceedingly hard for the Germans it the Allied Air and interdiction in particular. I believe this was originally created back in 2000 or 2002 under COW and the game played a little differently with interdiction. I think we played this with the new turn order rules and I think that may have upset the balance a wee bit in this one. I had over 100 interdiction attacks for several turns in a row without moving any units (in between each round) and it was tiresome hitting the enter key and not being able to defend against the air attacks which wore done effectiveness and readiness. Perhaps this is historic and if so then I can see how Rommel and the DAK was demoralized by the incessant air attacks.

The above does not take away from Tyrone's victory. He played well and I just could not plug the gaps in the lines when they final started cracking on turn 8 and 9 and broke on turn 10 and by turn 11 there was just no hope for the Axis. In real life I am sure the Germans would have tried to extracted what they could I only had the northern section that had anything capable of moving. The Italians would have evaporated or surrendered.

I do know this, I believe I'll be playing Tyrone again.
