356 NORTH CAPE 1943: The Sinking of the Scharnhorst Campaign series. In the spring of 1943, the Scharnhorst was redeployed to Norway. There, working in concert with other German warships such as the battleship Tirpitz, she posed a major threat to the Arctic convoys – the Allied sea lifeline to Russia. Her presence, alongside Tirpitz, forced the British to tie down ships in Arctic waters. When Tirpitz was put out of action, and Hitler demanded naval support for the war in Russia, the crew of the Scharnhorst under Rear-Admiral Bey acted. In late December 1943, she put to sea, her target an Allied convoy passing through the Barents Sea on its way to Murmansk. Unknown to Bey, the British were using the convoy as bait to draw the Scharnhorst into battle. $24.00 USD

Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn
In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming

How I wished we had never laid eyes upon that simple stone stele from antiquity, no bigger than a wine bottle, but covered with symbols from a language aged before Latin or Greek or Egyptian hieroglyphics or Sumerian cuneiform. I blamed myself for getting involved, of course, and had made peace with that decision for I cannot change it, but I have come to realize that forces beyond the ken of man hurried me along my path of darkness…

STRATEGY & TACTICS #325 Italian-Ottoman War

STRATEGY & TACTICS #325 Italian-Ottoman War Two-player wargame using a variation on the system used in Windhoek (S&T #313) simulating the Italian invasion of the territories that became Libya in 1911 and the subsequent campaign that ended in the following year. The campaign saw the Italians seize the coastal towns, but the Ottomans, supported by local Arab and Bedouin tribes, fell back into the interior. The war came to an end via Italian naval attacks in the Aegean and elsewhere, with the Ottomans finally ceding Libya to Rome. This laid the foundation for the establishment of an Italian colony and had an obvious effect on the campaign in North Africa during World War II. Scale: Each hex represents 45 kilometers, with each game turn one to two months. Units are at the battalion level. Components: One 22x34-inch map, 176 counters, and magazine. $40.00 USD
