While playing the OCS game Tunisia II I set my mind on finding a suitable ALS scenario to get a more detailed view of the nature of the fighting during the Race for Tunis. This scenario plays in the wet Tunisian winter of November 1942. Axis units in Tunisia are few and the Allies try to race towards Tunis in an attempt to take important logistical and air force bases.
The scenario continues with both sides building up forces and supplies in Tunisia. American, French and German divisions enter the scene. Combat operations now take place some mere 70 kms from Bizerte and Tunis respectively.
In the last months I have aquired quite a few new wargames that I am now eager to get out of the box an try them. Some I play via VASSAL which makes for hours of good games. Others I go for solo mainly to understand the rules or to take notes for an solo AAR. Today I have my first game of Tunisia II from the Operational Combat Series starting with the “Race for Tunis” Scenario.
