Having a lot of details about equipment for units is really useful for gamers
Before I had acquired the first four volumes of the Official History of the war in the Mediterranean and Middle East, I was reduced to making up OOBs for units, down to the regiment and battalion level. Of course, the only way to extract the really useful information is to grind through the volumes, page-by-page, taking notes. Vol.III is especially useful, for the information about what tanks and guns were assigned to units in the Crusader Battle, and Battleaxe, before that. Much of this is in notes at the bottom of the page, so a very careful examination is required to get it all. I have been sure to list what I found in the Official History volumes in this blog, so you should be able to go through the archive pages to find the data.
