Lightfoot's Southern Assault - The Desert Rat's Diversion - 23rd October 1942

Watermarked PDF
  • 'Lightfoot's Southern Assault’ is the latest scenario for 'Monty's Desert Battles' in pdf format only and completes our coverage of this epic battle.
  • It depicts the diversionary attack in the south by 7th Armoured Division during the battle of El Alamein and is a companion game to the ‘Naqb Rala’ and ‘Lightfoot' scenarios in our 'Monty's Desert Battles' book and our last pdf, ‘Lightfoot’s Left Flank’.
  • Play this scenario alone or combine it with the other scenarios to fight the whole of the Battle of El Alamein. An ideal club project to commemorate the 70th anniversary.
  • Take command of the ‘Desert Rats’ or the tough paratroopers of the Folgore Division and Ramcke Brigade. Can 7th Armoured break through the Axis minefields and keep 21st Panzer Division pinned in the southern part of the Alamein battlefield? Or will the resolute Axis paratroops inflict enough casualties to force a Desert Rat withdrawal?
  • Played at the reduced divisional level RF ratio, 'Lightfoot's Southern Assault', features less formidable minefield defences and a large scale tank assault, all played on a recommended 8' x 5' size table.
  • The 'Lightfoot's Southern Assault' pdf includes background history, special rules, battle map, full graphic orbats for both forces and no less than 24 new photographs!
  • You will need a copy of 'Monty's Desert Battles' to play this game.

Original electronic
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.
