Feb 1941 AFRIKA II MMP
AXIS - Man o Man, I get two coastal shipping available and 6 Port Capacity - I've been splitting it up, 1 unit, 1 SP, but it
seems fruitless. Using some of the Trento Division for trucking (Trento Option) because I need to get that supply
Rommel is in Tripoli - must get him ashore.
And makes his impact felt dealing damage to the Axis/Allied middle and pushing the 7Arm and
Shelby units down 2 steps and 2 hexes. They took another step loss when having to retreat across EZOCs.
Will continue to build up Forces in Halfaya pass and Bardia. I
I am confident we can hold off the weak Allied forces.
Oh yes, our Camel Group penetrated deep behind enemy lines and was able to procure some supply and
destroy a Supply depot (2SP used and destroyed).
ALLIES - Mersa Matruh dock workers must be on strike, this port's been open once in 6 months.
Anyway, backed off the line to lick our wounds and again prepare for an attack. I've got a long way to go to get Bardia and Tobruk.
I've positioned supply to rebuild my damaged 7 ARM units, and was excited to get 4 replacement units this turn.
Oh, we did take out the Camel Group and also lost a 4-3-8 7Arm Brigade in the process.
AXIS - Looks like we're creating good old fashioned Great War lines in the desert. Even the aggressive Mr Rommel thought we should
consolidate our forces and prepare for an upcoming offensive. Our supplies are dwindling and I'm concerned we'll begin taking
losses soon. We hear of reinforcements coming, however, with supplies as they are, I'm concerned. Allied naval
superiority in the last few months has created a massive shipping loss and we aren't getting the promised supplies.
Though, this is what Rome tells us, I believe it's more il Duce's extravagances taking what little we have.
