Heading Into The Desert – The Medjez Valley 1943

Some guys have put together this awesome table for the Medjez Valley in 1943. This seems very apt considering we've been looking at the Americans In Tunisia as part of an article series recently.

The game uses Battlegroup Torch and shows a battle and the first advance of the 2nd Armoured Division!

Was another great Salute. Much better layout this year with the bigger names dotted around rather than all at the front, made things much easier and no bottle necks.
