Sidi Rezegh, southeast of Tobruk: November 21st, 1941. (Scenario Size: Corps. Head to Head). At the end of November 20th, the British army ordered the breakout of the Tobruk garrison to begin on the morning of the 21st, while the 7th Armored Brigade and 7th Armored Support Group attacked from Sidi Rezegh to meet up with the breakout near ed Duda. Meanwhile, the Afrika Korps was finally concentrating its effort, issuing orders to both panzer divisions to move on Sidi Rezegh on the morning of November 21st, from the south and southeast. In response to these movements, the remaining tank brigades from the 7th Armored, concentrated south of the panzer divisions in the area of Gabr Saleh, were ordered to pursue and harass the Germans. This resulted in running fights and hard pushes throughout the area, from Sidi Rezegh to the south and southeast. This day's fighting saw the odd situation of the British driving northwest from Sidi Rezegh while being attacked from the rear while the Germans pushing on Sidi Rezegh were being attacked in turn from the rear.

Very slow start with both sides slogging through the "soggy" desert looking for contact. Quite exciting at the end!

Very enjoyable scenario with plenty of local battles. Looks like all other units except for tanks on both sides are too slow to come to arrive to the battlefield on time.

Crazy but very enjoyable scenario. Allies weakness is plentiful armor with little infantry support.
