Mediterranean Fury: The Battle of Cape Matapan is a wargame simulation on the naval action that occurred near Crete during World War II. The game design is and highly playable, yet one that portrays the historical challenges facing the combatants.

Goaded by their German Allies into taking some sort of action to disrupt the British reinforcements being rushed to Greece, and smarting from the humiliation of the British air raid a few months earlier at Taranto, the Italian fleet set sail on March 27, 1941. Italian Admiral Iachino sought to intercept the British reinforcement convoys east of Crete. Admiral Cunningham, alerted to the Italian fleet’s sortie, set sail to do battle. The resultant clash off of Greece’s Cape Matapan on the 28th would be the only time the Italian Navy challenged the English for control of the Middle Sea. It would also be the last time the Royal Navy would do battle on the high seas with an enemy fleet.
