Description

The Mediterranean Theater Expansion introduces British Army figures and rules to the Memoir '44 game system, as well as a whole new class of Special Weapon Assets to embed in infantry units. Also included are eight new historical scenarios in North Africa, 44 new, double-sided Terrain tiles, plus new obstacles, markers, and special-forces badges.
