Connect El Agheila to Bardia?

Not sure how to interpret this as a primary objective when playing Sandstorm. Create a supply line through the desert? By pass Tobruk assuming it hasn't been taken? Long ways around or through the desert.
Thanks.

Yes, you need to connect these two points with a supply line. My advice is to ignore units in the north and go directly for Tobruk. This way you can prevent Tobruk from being reinforced from the troops in the north. Their mine defence fields are impressive but cheap Italian infantry will gladly throw themselves on the mines to remove them.

Thank you. Tobruk is pretty ambitious, at least later in other campaigns I've played. Will have to try your advice. Have a good one.
