If you're interested in doing some watching around the Desert War then you can check out the BBC Program, SAS: Rogue Warriors which talks about, in the first episode, how the SAS was formed out there in the heat.

You Can Find It Here...

The raiders caused issues out of all proportion to their numbers, tying up troops in an effort to guard lines of communication and airfields, supply depots and so on

I wonder if Battlefront plans to update Raiding Aces for V4. I hope so.

The bbc also did a thing called the peoples war. It’s a great resource with reall war stories and diaries as told by the troops who were there.

My grandfather on my Dads side was in the LRDG and then transferred to the SAS.

A great read is ‘The Long Range Desert Group 1940-1945: Providence Their Guide’ by David Lloyd-Owen, former commander of the LRDG. Covers all of their actions during the war from Africa to the Aegean to the Balkans.

Played Italian Autosahariana in V3 “Raiding Aces” loads of fun. Hoping they do a V4 treatment so these unique armies can still be played
