Khamsin DTO (id:#56002)
Avalon Hill (ASL 5 - West of Alamein ID:37)
Designer: Eugene Murell
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The Gazala battles had been raging for days with Panzerarmee Afrika driving for the great prize of Tobruk. Several British strongpoints still lay in its path, one of which was the Knightsbridge box held by the 201st Guards Motor Brigade Group. On 13 June, the position was enveloped by the 15th Panzer Division from the east and the 21st Panzer Division from the west. After a day of heavy fighting, the final clash of armor occurred when units of the 2nd and 4th Armored Brigades, sent to reinforce a Guards position on Rigel Ridge, met 21st Panzer Division during the last stages of one of the desert’s violent sandstorms – a khamsin. . . .[Mark Nixon, Journal #1]: British and German forces struggle to even find one another amidst a sand storm, a Khamsin. "Wide-open" desert spaces have shrunk to a close quarters arena with a maximum range of but ten hexes.

2015-05-25(D) Richard Carter vs Damon Norko German winMy defense absolutely fell apart over the course of a 1/2 turn. Interesting scenario. I chose to hedgehog around one of the hillocks and put a lighter force on another one, but my AFV's lost the tank battle badly and I couldn't defend against swirling tanks and HT's in the swirling dust
