BFWW2 Desert Cards
North Africa Card Supplement
The North Africa Card Supplement expands the Battlefront WWII System into the North African Theatre. It provides new cards for the Italians, the Afrika Korps, the British/Commonwealth 8th Army, and some U.S. units that fought in Tunisia. Our North Africa Card Supplement contains 143 unit cards: The unit cards provided in this supplement augment those found in the Battlefront WWII Rules but otherwise are designed as a stand-alone supplement. As such there is some overlap with our other supplements but you don't need to purchase them. The North African campaign can be divided into 3 distinct periods:
  1. The Italians and British struggle for the control of Egypt, Libya, and the Italian colonies to the South of Egypt.
  2. Rommel and the Afrika Korps arrive, and the back and forth struggle rages for almost 2 years over the Western Desert.
  3. The Americans land in Northwest Africa, and the Axis forces are slowly pushed back into Tunisia to their ultimate surrender.
The North African campaign featured considerable evolution in equipment, starting out with early Blitzkrieg-era tanks and guns and ending with a variety of more modern equipment, with the first of the "Big Cats" (the Tiger I) making its appearance in Tunisia near the end. Especially in the Western Desert, it featured daring flanking attacks, desperate armored battles, and a surprisingly chivalrous behavior by all combatants.
