Rommel unleashes the Panzer Divisions against 7th Armoured Division at Sidi Rezegh. Yes, the armoured battle that Auchinleck and Cunningham had wanted has finally arrived, but with Gott, Norrie, Davy, and Jock Campbell be able to win it? Or with the Germans, with Crüwell and von Ravenstein, crush them? Operation Crusader is about to heat up, and the British are in trouble.

My video entitled “Why I'm Passionate about HISTORY and What Got Me Into it”
History isn’t as boring as some people think, and my goal is to get people talking about it. I also want to dispel the myths and distortions that ruin our perception of the past by asking a simple question - “But is this really the case?”. I have a 2:1 Degree in History and a passion for early 20th Century conflicts (mainly WW2). I’m therefore approaching this like I would an academic essay. Lots of sources, quotes, references and so on. Only the truth will do.
