Kasserine Pass, Feb 19th 1943 Rommel had not completely decided on the route to take for his attack on the Western Dorsal. This led to him splitting his forces and trying to punch through the Allied defenders at both the Kasserine Pass and Sbiba. The first attempts to breakthrough at both were unsuccessful. At the Pass, however, on the night of Feb 19/20th the Germans started infiltrating the US line. Then, in the mist and dampness of the morning, 20PzG and the crack Italian mountain troops of the 5th Bersaglieri were committed. Around noon, two Bns from 10PzD increased the pressure and broke the US line. [Size:medium] Designer Note: This scenario has been optimized for HTH.
