Point 175, Side Rezegh area: November 23rd, 1941. (Scenario Size: Battalion. Head to Head). The New Zealand division has been ordered to move significant forces west to Sidi Rezegh, moving as quickly as possible. Earlier this day, they overran the DAK HQ, causing massive command and communication issues for the German forces. Now, they have reached the area of their objective for the day - Point 175. They are deployed to attack, with tank support. The German defenders have been in place for a few days and have seen significant action against the 7th Armoured Division. For both sides, this is almost a side show compared to the heavy fighting to the southwest that resulted in the destruction of a South African brigade and heavy losses to the remnants of the 7th Armoured. But this battle played a key role in the further evolution of the battle that helped lead to the 8th Army emerging victorious.
