Gambut, east of Tobruk: November 23rd, 1941. (Scenario Size: Battalion. Head to Head or Axis vs AI). As a result of the unfolding disaster faced by the British forces in the Sidi Rezegh area, 8th Army has ordered more forces sent to the area. The New Zealand division, deployed near Bardia and Sollum, has been ordered to move significant forces west to Sidi Rezegh, moving as quickly as possible. On the way, they are to clear Axis forces out of the way but are not be distracted from their primary goal. Little did they know that the Deutsches Afrika Korps panzer division supply bases and rear area units are just north of Gambut and the Via Balbia. For the Germans, KG Briehl is protecting the Gambut area, which in addition to its regular forces, has added emergency platoons built on supply/rear area personnel, plus some tanks and artillery/AT guns leaving the nearby repair workshops. KG Briehl must stop the New Zealand forces from moving north of the Via Balbia and destroying the workshops located there. This skirmish protected the critical German rear area workshops and supplies, or their ability to continue the battle would have been crippled.
