This starter set is based around the first battle of El Alamein. A conflict fought in the western desert campaign. It took place between 1–27 July 1942 in Egypt. The combined Axis forces of the Panzer Army Afrika and Italian army led by Generalfeldmarschall (Field Marshal) Erwin Rommel attempted to enter into Egypt and was staved off by the British and the Commonwealth 8th army who was led by General Claude Auchinleck.

Whilst it ultimately ended in a stalemate, the British did succeed of holding the Axis combined arms at bay.
