Forgotten Legions, Designer Signature Edition, marks the return of two wargaming classics by Vance von Borries: Drive on Damascus and Bloody Keren, now published together for the first time. They cover fascinating, almost forgotten conflicts that would guide the course of WWII in the Mediterranean Theatre. Rather than being simple reprints, both games have been re-mastered as all-new, super-sized editions. Forgotten Legions is another Classic Reborn by Compass Games!

Drive on Damascus is an operational level simulation of the 1941 Allied invasion of Vichy French-held Syria and Lebanon. A fluid situation develops as both sides seek to outflank and attack. An exhaustive Order of Battle based on archival records helps capture key historical facets of the campaign including armour advantage, air power, ranged artillery, flotillas and commandos, garrisons, mountain units, untried units, and more.

Bloody Keren is an operational level simulation of the 1941 campaign in Italian Eritrea that historically saw a climax at the mountain pass at Keren. Here too, proper operational planning is at a premium as you allocate your forces as both sides can attack and counter-attack.

This Designer Signature Edition delivers Vance von Borries' updated design treatment of his 1981 and 983 original releases by World Wide Wargames (3W). All aspects of the games are enhanced. The updated design features rules common to both games with each including a short scenario in addition to the Campaign game. Playable solitaire or as a two-player game, each including a short scenario in addition to the Campaign game. Playable solitaire or as a two-player game, each Campaign can allow for up to four players. This edition serves as the ultimate treatment in celebrating these designs by Vance von Borries and have been super-sized with a bigger playing surface and large 5/8" counters to deliver an optimal play experience.
