    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 new boards!
