Turning the Tables DTO (id:#56004)
Avalon Hill (ASL 5 - West of Alamein ID:39)
Designer: Unknown
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The main line of defense in Libya was a natural bottleneck along the coast at Mersa el Brega, with the sea on one flank and an extensive salt marsh on the other. The British mined and wired this line extensively. Rommel launched a full scale assault on Mersa el Brega which breached the outer British defenses, then bogged down in the face of dogged resistance. The Germans paused to regroup in the swirling dust, and at 1700 hours came on again. . .
