Tobruk, Eastern Cyrenaica, Libya: April 30th, 1941. (Scenario Size: Regiment. Axis Human vs Allied AI or Head to Head. This scenario uses variable objective victory points) Rommel decided to try and capture Tobruk for the fourth time as his new unit, 15. Panzer Division arrived to the west of the fortress. The Deutsches Afrika-Korps now spent the time to prepare and reconnoiter the Allied defenses around the high ground at Point 209. Deciding to launch a night attack, kampfgruppe were to attack either side of the high ground and then to converge and clear it. Newly arrived pioneers were to clear the defenses and help breach the Allied positions. Facing the Axis, the Australian 2/24th Battalion had just replaced 2/48th Battalion that had moved back into reserve. The 2/24th were immediately under pressure, the attack occurring on only the 2nd night after they had moved into the forward positions.
