    St-Georges-d'Elle, France, 11 June 1944: The quiet Norman village of St. Georges d’Elle first appeared in the history of the Normandy campaign shortly after the D-Day landings. There, a firm German defense-line was encountered on 11 June, in what was then referred to as the Berigny-St. Georges d’Elle-Ivon sector. Here, the 2nd Infantry Division, known by its moniker,“Second to None”, had its first encounter with the 3rd Parachute Division, blooded its soldiers, and took its first enemy prisoners. It was the beginning of a seesaw battle at and around St. Georges d'Elle. Between 11-16 June, when a halt was ordered to prepare for the attack on Hill 192, the division’s positions snared around nearby villages, and consolidated hard-fought gains. St. Georges d’Elle was to change hands several times, was entered by battalions of the 23rd and 38th Regiments. The 23rd also captured Berigny, while St. Germain d’Elle fell to the 9th.

    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 one LARGE HEX map + 8 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. 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.
