A desert battle, the map is dominated by sand, rocky hills and deep canyons. Each of the German and British forces are provided an uncapturable and capturable bases. Between these are 2 capturable points. In the far North West of the map is a desolate airbase, complete with 2 Spitfires and a B-17, that is open for either team to use; however, the British Forces have easier access to this than the Germans, due to the distances of their respective bases.
"Though Operation Battleaxe has depleted Allied resources and exhausted Allied troops, Churchill has decided to follow up with an immediate offensive named Operation Crusader. Knowing that the Germans are in smart shape, and not worse, Churchill is confident that this attack will take the Desert Fox and his Afrika Korps by complete surprise. Allied forces will secure the Halfaya Pass and then push onward toward Capuzzo and Gabr Saleh to attack Rommel's divisions while they are recovering from the previous battle. As part of the operation, Allied command has ordered the fortification of the Gazala lines. With canyons acting as strategic choke points, the Allies should be able to defend this terrain against the German armored units. At the point known as Knightsbridge, a unit stands guard while landmines are being placed. It is imperative that the Allies hold this position or the enemy will gain a major advantage in the desert war."
"Churchill's intuition was right. The attack surprised the enemy, but victory did not come easily. The combined British and New Zealand forces sent Rommel scurrying in retreat. Many British tanks, however, were disabled, and many men were killed while holding on to the Knightsbridge choke point. The Germans retreated with a large portion of their army intact. It's likely that the Allies will meet these same forces again at Tobruk."
