    Along the Causeway to Carentan, France, 6 June 1944: The afternoon battle along the causeway wore on with obvious signs that American troops were tired coming to the fore. Following a truce that cleared casualties from the field German intentions became obvious. The enemy meant to either drive the 502nd Parachute Regiment back across the causeway or destroy the two battalions holding the ground around a local farm. The afternoon was a period of grim holding on as German fire intensified. The B-r-r-r-p-p-p of machine-pistols was heard coming ever closer, but the hedgerow terrain concealed the approaching enemy. German troops crept along the hedgerows, coming onto American positions at the crossroads with rifle and machine-gun fire. The thirty-five men there from 1st Battalion had to fall back in a hurry. But the entire unit did not fall back. Seven men held out, creating a small defensive island on the extreme right, holding on throughout the day. For hours the enemy pressed through the orchards and hedgerows. Company C and what remained of Company A held their ground in the cabbage patch for more than six hours, taking losses but maintaining unit cohesion and holding off all enemy attacks.

    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 nine boards that link to create one LARGE HEX map + 4 scenarios that play on the map + a new M4A1 Damage Table with Panzerfaust HPT. All the rules you need to add to the core BRL 1192 rulebook are also provided on this folding card. You also receive a new Casualty Table. This is NOT a complete game. Ownership of the BRL 1192 Core and any expansions providing American counters is required to play. This product is 100% MADE IN THE USA.
