    North of Brécourt Manor, Normandy, 6 June 1944 0830 Hours: After linking up with his parent unit at the hamlet of Le Grand Chemin on the morning of June 6, 1944, 1st Lieutenant Richard Winters was ordered up front away from his company. With minimal instructions and no briefing, Winters found himself tasked to destroy a German artillery battery. The battery had initially been reported to be 88 mm guns firing onto causeway exit #2 leading off Utah Beach thereby disrupting the advance of the U.S. 4th Infantry Division inland on this route. It turned out to be four 105’s, with support elements nearby. Several other units had stumbled into the enemy position earlier in the morning and had been repulsed. Winters collected a team of thirteen men from his own and other companies and developed a quick plan of attack. He positioned a pair of M1919 .30 caliber machine guns to serve as a base of fire and sent several soldiers (2nd Lt. Lynn D. Compton, Sgt. Joseph D. Toye, and Sgt. William J. Guarnere) to one flank to destroy a machine gun position with grenades and provide covering fire. Sgt. C. Carwood Lipton climbed a tree, which exposed him to enemy fire but provided an excellent view of the enemy. He opened fire, but return fire caused him to return rapidly to the ground. Winters then led an attack down the hedgerow leading to the first gun position. After the four guns were disabled, Winters’ team was low on ammunition and withdrew.

    TOBRUK DEPROGRAMMED launched the detailed new BRL 1192 game SYSTEM and allows you to recreate the war in North Africa during World War II. The ultimate tactical-level game presentation is coupled with easy-to-understand and use rules and updated charts to enable you to re-create all the facets of the decisive Battle of Gazala—Rommel’s most spectacular victory that led directly to his defeat at El Alamein only a few months later. Unlike its predecessor, the new BRL 1192TM game engine that is at the heart of Tobruk DEPROGRAMMED equips you to experience Gazala AND the entire war in North Africa. What’s more, MONSTER gaming is part of the system with DTT expansions, plus additional battlefields, counters, and MORE ... make this a new journey that will entertain and educate you anew.

    BRL 1192 delivers breathtaking action and suspense at the scale and detail true tactical-level enthusiasts demand—individual squads, weapons and tanks. All the subtle nuances of tactical-level combat are provided by the system: gun duels; separate pivoting turrets; AFV indirect fire; coaxial machine-guns; melee; smoke; armor penetration; morale; AFV overruns; and more. Tanks are modeled using discrete armor values at turret, superstructure, lower hull and track aspects and front, side and rear facings and allows for the realistic use of High Explosive, Armor Piercing, APCR and HEAT ammunition. This is all accomplished using a detailed yet intuitive system that avoids the use of side notes, pre-recorded written moves and is SOLITAIRE friendly.

    This expansion module for BRL 1192 includes four boards that link to create one LARGE HEX map + 4 scenarios that play on the map + a new M4A1 Damage Table with Panzerfaust HPT.
