Wavell’s War (WW)
The first Grand Europa module, Wavells War links the games War in the Desert and Balkan Front with new material (maps and counters) covering the campaign for Italian East Africa. This is a module and requires the games War in the Desert and Balkan Front in order to play fully (the East Africa campaign and the Desert Scenarios in Wavells War requires only Wavells War and War in the Desert; and the Balkan Front scenarios in Wavells War require only Wavells War and Balkan Front, but the huge Grand Campaign Game requires Wavells War, War in the Desert, and Balkan Front).
- 21 mapsheets covering all of East Africa and much of Sudan and the Arabian peninsula,
- 1 mapsheet overlay to Balkan Front
- Play aids including eleven game charts
- A rules book
- A scenarios and appendices book with 16 scenarios
- 22 quarter-size maps

Istanbul Rail Ferry
On reviewing map 3C (Istanbul), one detail struck me as odd. There is a rail line crossing the Bosphorus and connecting Istanbul to Uskudar. Shouldn’t this be a or a ferry? I think the bridges crossing the Bosphorus are post-WWII.
Yes, the crossing between Istanbul and Uskudar is a rail ferry. If you have the Total War maps, check out map 105, and in lower left of map you can see the Istanbul/Uskudar area, including the rail ferry.
