"CM:Afrika Korps" (Turn-based Strategy Game of the Year; Wargame of the Year) has been licensed by the Australian Government, Department of Defence to aid Officers in historical education!

The Australian Defence Simulation Office has now formally placed a purchase order to obtain a special version of CM:AK to be able to simulate and re-play historical tactical engagements in Greece, Crete and North Africa from 1940-1943. This version will be available for issue to all members of the Australian Department of Defence (contact ADSO-Joint 1) and will include a multimedia presentation on the Battle for Crete.

Besides a number of changes to mainly the Australian Order of Battles (ORBAT), Greece will be added as a playable theater. Projected delivery of the final milestone for this special Australian DoD version is June.

The Australian DoD version will not be available commercially.

Shouldn't you have a red herring as your avatar?

I should, but the Fish in Black means something. So I hang onto it. Nice idea though.

Own Goal.

Thorpe was always in the Olympics. Just not his pet 400 metres (or 200? - too sick to think clearly) event. And now he's even back in his pet event, cos Craig Stevens withdrew.
