MOYALE, KENYA, 1 jULY 1940: After the declaration of war, the border between
Kenya and Ethiopia remained quiet. Great Britain's toe-hold walled
fort surrounded by barbed-wire. This fort was situated opposite
its Italian counterpart, the fort at Moyale, about a half mile
away. On 28 June the peace was shattered as a bombardment crashed
down ... or didn't ... most of the rounds were duds. The incoming,
nevertheless, signaled the start of hostilities. The Italians
laid seige to the fort for about a week, despite a counter-attack
foundering ... the British force got lost in the dark of night.
The Italian force then withdrew for 24 hours before striking again.
This latest attack was also beaten back. By 14 July the defender's
water supply had been expended. Resupply was impossible so the
remaining soldiers of the garrison slipped socks over their boots
and withdrew, weapons in tow, under the cover of darkness.
Scenarios cover actions in Kenya, Sudan,
British Somaliland, Ethiopia, across Abyssinia > and include
the eponymous tank battle at Gallabat, naturally. Colonial troops,
Italians, South Africans, and more are featured along with brand
