About this DLC
In the summer of 1940, Italian dictator Benito Mussolini joined Germany's war in a bid to rapidly expand his fledgling empire. The Italian Army would proceed to attack Greece, Egypt, and the British Colonies in East Africa.
You will take command of the vastly outnumbered Allied forces as they attempt to stop first the Italians, and then the Germans in the form of the vaunted Afrika Korps. From a token force of a few divisions, your army will expand into a vast force of more than a quarter-million men.
Experience the see-saw action in the sweltering heat of the Desert in operations such as Compass and Crusader. Re-live the often overlooked and untold story of the dogged fighting in the mountains of Eritrea and the Blitz through Somalia and into Ethiopia.
- 20+ historical scenarios based on British Commonwealth campaigns in East Africa, North Africa, and the Mediterranean in 1940-41.
- Large map coverage expanded to include the Western Desert and the Middle East, plus a brand new map for East Africa.
