War on the Southern Front (WSF) is the second installment HPS's Total War in Europe series. It focuses on the ground and air campaigns fought in the regions surrounding the Mediterranean in 1940-43. This includes the Italian Invasion of Greece in 1940, the subsequent German invasion of the Balkans, Rommel and the exploits of the Afrika Korps, and the Allied invasion of Sicily. These campaigns saw a wide range of operations, from swift armor thrusts in the desert to infantry slogging matches in the mountains to daring airborne assaults.

 

Each scenario covers a campaign or major battle. These include the battles for Tobruk and El Alamein, the Axis last stand in Tunisia, the mountain warfare in Greece in 1940-41, the German airborne assault on Crete, the British intervention in Vichy Syria, and the Patton-Montgomery race for Messina in Sicily. Game units are regimental-brigade level, with divisional builds. There are also extensive air orders of battles. Command, supply, partisans, weather and many more features of operational level warfare are included.

The Wargamer is pleased to recognize John Tiller and HPS with our Award for Excellence

World War II: The First Blitzkrieg, predecessor to War on the Southern Front, is elegantly designed with important factors handled simply yet accurately. Including several campaigns that havenít been well-covered in other wargames, and boasting an AI is good enough to make simulations meaningful, World War II: The First Blitzkrieg is an excellent title for the World War II grognard.
