Ft. Capuzzo, northwest of Halfaya Pass: November 26th, 1941. (Scenario Size: Regiment. Head to Head or Axis Human vs. Allied AI). While Rommel had been trying to organize a concentrated attack on the various Commonwealth forces deployed around the frontier for days, his men were exhausted and low on supplies. The result was failure after failure, along with costly attacks. Supplies were routed from the dumps located east of Tobruk to the west and then south and east to reach the Panzer spearheads, leaving them vulnerable to delays and raids by light Commonwealth Jock Column forces. Today it is the New Zealand division's turn, although what appeared to be a coordinated attack was actually made up of a push from the north while units south of the NZ forces were hoping to get through to Bardia for badly needed supplies. For the New Zealand troops, after initial successes around Capuzzo and Sollum, they had moved onto the defense while the bulk of their division marched to Sidi Rezegh. They know that German panzer forces are all around them and are concerned with being crushed by the large tank forces. Little do they know the poor state the Axis are in by this time, but it may still be a tough battle with the enemy attacking from south and north at the same time.
