BREVITY ASSAULT contains an Operational Level that permits to play a larger scale battle than the most diffuse campaign games available for ASL. Basically what you get is a game at company/platoon level where you solve the combat not with simple dice rolls but with ASL scenarios. BREVITY ASSAULT depicts the hard fought battles that occurred in mid May, 1941 on the border between Lybia and Egypt during the so called "Operation Brevity".

BREVITY ASSAULT includes the following:

7 action packed scenarios, including 3 campaign games (CG) covering the Operation Brevity from 5 to 18 operational turns
30 full color, die cut 1/2" ASL counters
31 full color, die cut 5/8" ASL counters
217 full color, die cut 5/8" operational counters
One 8.5"x 11" operational map which represent historical situation on the Lybia/Egypt border
Two 30” x 26.5” HASL map sheets which combine to represent the historical layout of Halfaya Pass
One 31” x 23” HASL map sheet which represents the historical layout of the village of Sollum
Rules pages describing Vehicles/Ordnance notes, BA Scenario Special Rules (SSR), map terrain and campaign game rules
