When compared to the enormous campaigns waged on the Eastern Front and in Western Europe during World War II, the struggle in North Africa between the British Commonwealth and the Axis might seem an unimportant sideshow. However, its influence and impact were far-reaching and dictated many strategic decisions that influenced the course of the war.

This Bolt Action campaign book will focus on the conflict in the area most commonly referred to as the Western Desert – a campaign theatre reaching from the Libyan city of Tripoli to Cairo, and the Egyptian Nile valley, a distance of some 1300 miles, a featuring some of the most hostile terrains on Earth.

It covers a period of time from September 1940 when Mussolini’s Italian Army invaded British-held Egypt to the final retreat of Rommel’s Afrika Korps from Egypt during October 1942. During that period the conflict witnessed much hard fighting resulting in spectacular victories and the capture of territory, equipment and prisoners for both sides whilst also subjecting them to a series of demoralising retreats where final and irrevocable defeat seemed assured.

This book has 167 pages full of content, ranging from new rules and units, full-colour images, history and backgrounds and more!

Don’t forget that our Bolt Action books come with an exclusive FREE special figure, only available through ordering direct!

The highly detailed metal model that comes with The Western Desert is none other than the Desert Fox himself, Erwin Rommel!

  • Schöne Starterpacks für Bolt Action im (frühen) Nordafrika-Setting.

    Mein favorisierter Schauplatz in WW II ist aber die Ostfront.

  • Rommel sieht aus, als hätte man ihm mit dem Spaten ins Gesicht geschlagen. ^.^

    Bin ja hier etwas skeptisch, da das Thema eigentlich schon ganz gut von anderen Herstellern wie den Perries in Plastik und Zinn bedient wird (bin schon auf die Nordafrika/ Mediterran Amerikaner von denen gespannt). Wobei Afrika ein Schauplatz des 2. Weltkrieges ist, denn ich persönlich eher in 15mm spiele. o.o

  • Illustriert sehr schön das größte Problem von Bolt Action: man spielt im Zugrahmen und kann den Chef des Afrikakorps aufstellen (was das Spiel noch nicht mal so verzerrt wie schwere Panzer oder Divisionsartillerie).
