It's Back! Axis & Allies Europe
"Axis & Allies Europe is the first Axis & Allies extension created by the original A&A designer, Larry Harris. He likes to call it "a whole new puzzle to solve." A&A Europe takes place only within the European theater where four powers (Germany, USA, USSR, and Great Britain) struggle on the continent, in the Atlantic, and across North Africa and the Middle East. Most of the rules will be familiar to Axis & Allies players. A&A Europe does add new pieces (artillery units and destroyers), new ways to take IPCs from the enemy (by occupying naval supply lines and taking over the oil fields of the Middle East), and expanded rules for Strategic Bombing Raids. Plus, all of the pieces in A&A Europe are country-specific. The fighter units are not generic fighter planes but the U.S. P-38 Lightning, the Soviet Yak, the German Stuka, and the British Spitfire."

It's Back! Axis & Allies D-Day
"June 6, 1944: You are on the beaches of Normandy, and ahead lies an uncertain future. The fate of the world hangs in the balance, as you struggle for control over the cities of Cherbourg, St. Lo, and Caen. Savage, quick, and decisive, D-Day was the major turning point in the European theatre, with liberty itself on the line. Designed for 2 or 3 players, Axis and Allies D-Day accurately captures this dramatic conflict and places you squarely in the middle of the greatest battle of the 20th century. This is an all-new stand alone extension of the Axis and Allies line featuring three-tiered complexity and a new, extra-large game board."
