On the table just now, the game Tobruk from Strategy and Tactics #278. It’s about the battle for the port of that name in November – December 1941. Rommell has the Commonwealth troops bottled up in Tobruk, but Operation Crusader – the Allied Offensive – is about to attempt a rescue.

The game is set up, and I have been through the rules. There were some queries (quickly answered online) but the system seems relatively straightforward. It uses a chit pull to activate a corps on each side, and there are rules for artillery support and airpower. It will soon be time to see how it plays.
