The Falcon and the Gladiator: The Air War Over the Western Desert 1940 – February 1941 - On Sale from now until Christmas!


This supplement is a collection of 38 scenarios covering the first few months of the air war over North Africa.  The scenarios cover a number of different types of actions including: level bombing, dive bombing, torpedo bombing and of course fighter actions. There are orders of battle present for the start of the war, Marshal Graziani's September Offensive and for Operation Compass. There is data on squadron changes and squadron movements during the period as well.  There is a campaign system to enable you to play out your own campaign games.

There is a brief potted history of the three covered campaigns. Also included is information on the progression of the corresponding ground campaigns. There are some supplemental rules included for the campaign that cover the poor performance of Italian fighter craft in the early days of the war, specifically dealing with poor ammunition quality control and lack of radios in their fighter aircraft.

The scenarios are written to be fully compatible with both the Check Your Six rules and Bag the Hun

For more information, please take a look at my web page covering this exciting scenario supplement:

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
