Endless Heat and Dust... The Duel for North Africa is On

From 1940 to 1943, North Africa was the setting for an epic and unique struggle. The Italian and German Armies fought the British and their Commonwealth Allies back and forth across the scorching sand of Libya and Egypt. Following the launch of Operation Torch in 1942, the Americans joined the fray, moving across Morocco and Algeria, making Tunisia the stage for the climatic battles of the North African Campaign. Never before had two opposing armies as powerful and mobile as these fought over such a large area. It was a new kind of war, a desert war.

Desert Heat is a complete game in the Nations at War series. Desert Heat brings all the grit and fluid action of the North African Campaign to your gaming table in the platoon-level scale. Tanks, armoured vehicles, anti-tank guns, mortars, infantry, air support and artillery. The Italians, Germans and Vichy French will fight against the British, their Commonwealth Allies from Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, the Americans and the Free French. The names of many of these battle are well known, but Desert Heat gives you the chance to get down to the details. Mechili, Tobruk, Gazala, Sidi Rezegh, El Alamein, Kassarine Pass, Medjez-el-Bab, Faid, El Guettar, and more. New to the Nations at War series are obstacles such as Wire and Anti-Tank Ditches. What would desert combat be without that ever-unpredictable variable: Dust. It's Panzer IIs, IIIs, and IVs against M3 Lees and M5 Stuarts. It's M13/40s and L3s against Crusaders, Valentines and M3 Grants. It's Armoured Infantry in desperate close assaults. It's ATGs, air support and mines. It's World War II and the Nations are at War.
