NW of Saunnu, 120km SE of Benghazi, Libya: [Best played as Axis] After the retreat of the Axis desert army following Operation Crusader, Churchill and the British Chiefs of Staff were trying, as usual, to do too much with too little. Due to the growing crisis with the Japanese in the Far East, more and more Commonwealth units were pulled out of the desert. Meanwhile, Rommel's forces were being resupplied and refitted near El Agheila and the Desert Fox was soon ready for another "raid" into Cyrenaica. On January 21st, the Afrika Korps struck at the English hounds, which had pursued it across the African desert, and soon the Fox was driving the hounds before him. Hoping to recover and reorganize the 1st Armoured at Msus, the battered British 2nd Armoured Brigade was left to buy time in the desert north of Saunnu. They did not have long to wait. Late on the 24th, Kampfgruppe Kramer slammed into the rear guard of the 2nd, commencing a running battle with the exposed supply columns and vulnerable aircraft at Msus as the prize!
