12 Hours at Maleme

SNAFU Small Battles #4

"This game is about the soldiers, men that fought and died for a piece if rugged land centered on a small airfield and a rocky hill: New Zealander, British or Greek defenders amd German paratroopers. This game is dedicated to all that struggled on that first day of the invasion"

12 Hours at Maleme is a two-player wargame simulating the battle for the control of Maleme airfield, that took place on May 20, 1941 between the 1st Air Landing Assault Regiment from the German 7th Air Division and the 22nd New Zealand Infantry Battalion from the 2nd New Zealand Division. The game simulates the tense one-day fight over the control of Maleme airfield and the all-important Allied position on Hill 107.
