Memoir '44: Mediterranean Theater Expansion
From the Publisher...
**Requires Memoir '44 core game to play**
On the day war broke out, few nations imagined they would soon be forced to conduct land warfare outside of Europe. As a result, when the war reached North Africa, both men and machines were ill-prepared for the harsh demands of a desert campaign.
But history is a testament to the caliber of leadership, ingenuity and resolve of those who fought under such harsh conditions. Thanks in part to its long-established presence in far-flung corners of the globe, no army would display these qualities better than the British Commonwealth Forces.

|This is another great expansion for Memoir '44. It adds new miniatures, new rules, new tiles and of course new scenarios. I particularly like the new rules for embedding weapons with infantry units, which adds a new level of customization to the game and opens up new tactical possibilities. This expansion is more complex than the base game, but has so much more to offer.
