The Afrika Korps book follows the same pattern as Desert Rats, with its history interleaving that of the British book with focus on the fall of Tobruk and the retreat to El Alamein, the Battle of Alam el Halfa, and the fighting in southern Tunisia (where the Afrika Korps was joined by powerful Tiger tanks!).
The German special rules give most of their units the Stormtroopers rule allowing them to attempt a second Movement Order if they pass their first. This gives German units a tactical flexibility unrivalled by any other army. The Third Reich attribute reflects the (at the time quite justified) arrogance of the German soldiers, having just about conquered all of Europe, Russia, and North Africa in three years. They have a Last Stand rating of 3+, meaning they won’t quit, even when things are looking black.
