Tobruk, Libya: January 21st, 1941. (Scenario Size: Battalion+. Head to Head but recommended for Allied Human vs Axis AI. This scenario uses variable objective victory points) 2/8th Battalion was on the left flank of 19th Australian Brigades push to clear the Tobruk fortress. Its objective was to take Fort Pilastrino where the Italian Corp headquarters was believed to be housed. Unexpectedly, the Italian resistance stiffened, centered on a number of dug in tanks and further to the west, heavy AA guns. The 2/8th was to find the fight to be much more bloody and protracted than expected.
