Source for current Libyan civil war

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Could you please recommend some sources / books regarding the libyan civil war (2011 / 2018)? I am looking for the military operations with some more details, if possible, that what I could find on wikipedia or the few things I have currently found.

Thanks in advance

What exactly are you looking for or what is your intent? For instance are you looking for stuff to make a scenario/campaign out of or is this for study purposes or are you looking for general backgrounders to broaden your knowledge. I've always found in my career that the best place to start in any form of research is to ask yourself the question 'What exactly am I looking for?'

My goal is to design several scenario for CMSF2 taking the historical background of this civil war. Too early for a campaign I am afraid. I prefer to start with something little.

I am reading plenty of stuff right now to give me some ideas of interesting things to translate into scenario. I think I have all the necessary equipments (RED tanks / technicals) to do something not too far away from history. Perhaps will miss some NATO air assets like Tiger helicopters but an Apache is not too bad after all.

Of course, this will be RED vs RED

No worries, here's some more to keep you going and I'll probably leave it at that:
