Southern Conquest was a scenario that ran in Aces High starting in February, 2016. The basic motivation was to have a scenario based on a series of battles from North Africa up through Italy, specifically:  the Siege of Malta, Operation Torch, Operation Husky, and 15th AF strategic bombing out of Foggia, Italy.

Event descriptions:
Part 1 (overall)
Part 2 (Malta)
Part 3 (Torch)
Part 4 (Husky)
Part 5 (15th AF)
