Side Rezegh area: November 22nd, 1941. (Scenario Size: Division. Head to Head or Axis Human vs. Allied AI). After concentrating on Sidi Rezegh on the previous day, the Axis movements on this day were disjointed in the morning. The British armor would be able to concentrate its 3 brigades for the first time in the battle, while the German 21st Panzer moved to the north of Sidi Rezegh and 15th Panzer moved off to the east. Ultimately, 21st Panzer struck south against the British forces holding Sidi Rezegh, while 15th Panzer moved into the area late in the day. The end result was the Axis held Sidi Rezegh and had removed the threat from the south to the Bypass Road, but the British, although suffering heavy tank losses, were massed just south of the airfield and a South African brigade was within reach.
