The Battle Of Cairo
by: Dr.Karim Al-Bashir
This is a fictional scenario about the battle of Cairo. Would Field Marshal Erwin Rommel have won at El-Alamein he would have had
an easy road to Cairo, the largest British controlled city outside Britain. Losing Egypt meant that Britian lost it's trade routs to India and meant that the valuable oil fields of Arabia would fall to Hitler. Would this have happened then Hitler would have probably won the war.
In this Scenario you play as an elite German Waffen SS team made up to help in the fight.
1.Do not move the mouse during the opening cutscenes. This will lead the game to crash
2. Make it a habit to save. The game rarely crashes for no reason but it is better to be safe and save regularly
1. The scenario starts with some cutscenes of the battle.
2. Then you get to choose your team (by clicking on the red buildings)
3. Then you get to fight alongside the Afrika Korps in Cairo.
You will notice that the scenario has a few changes. First of all I hidthe command buttons. This means you get to see more of the city during the fight however this also meant that you cant see the map. At first I was unsure whether that would be good or bad but then during the game it felt right without the map you dont know were you are exactly in the city and so it adds to the mood of the game. What you need to know is that the city
is to the south east of the Waffen SS HQ.
I know that I am taking a gamble by removing the command buttons but in return it make the game much more thrilling and you get to see the whole screen. This said I know that I am going to get low ratings because of this. What I am saying is "The game is much better without the map, it makes the game much more thrilling not knowing where you are exactly"
It depends on whether you ally with the king or the revolutionaries
