Ruweisat Ridge - Auchinleck Stops Rommel

Watermarked PDF

'Ruweisat Ridge - Auchinleck Stops Rommel’ is the first in a new pdf series extending our popular Battlegroups concept back to the Western Desert battles that preceded El Alamein.

In May 1942 Rommel inflicted his most catastrophic defeat on 8th Army at Gazala. General Auchinleck had to gather his retreating forces at the El Alamein ‘choke point’ or Eygpt and the Suez Canal were lost. Pit the under strength veterans of 21st Panzer Division against the makeshift remains of 1st Armoured Division and the cobbled together ‘Robcol’ mobile column in this ‘prequel’ to our ‘Monty’s Desert Battles’ book and pdfs.

  • 400 point and 200 point (+50 point options) graphic Battlegroup orbats for British 1st Armoured Division (including the ‘Robcol’ mobile column) and 21st Panzer Division in July 1942.
  • ‘Ruweisat Ridge’ scenario with historical background, special rules and battle map.
  • Bonus ‘Deir el Shein’ scenario (the action that preceded ‘Ruweisat’)
  • 15 action photos of model vehicles, guns and figures to inspire your modelling and painting.

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.
