Point 175, Side Rezegh area: November 23rd, 1941. (Scenario Size: Division. Head to Head or Allied Human vs. Axis AI). As a result of the unfolding disaster faced by the British forces in the Sidi Rezegh area, 8th Army has ordered more forces to the area. The New Zealand division, deployed near Bardia and Sollum, has been ordered to move significant forces west to Sidi Rezegh, moving as quickly as possible. On the way, they are to clear Axis forces out of the way but are not to be distracted from their primary goal of moving west. Little did they know that the Deutsches Afrika Korps HQ is in their way, and the panzer division supply bases and rear area units are just north of Gambut and the Via Balbia. Point 175, their primary objective for the day, is occupied in force. For the Germans, they also have ad hoc forces protecting workshops and the DAK HQ, but all their mobile forces are focused on the destruction of the Commonwealth troops pushed south of Sidi Rezegh on the prior day and are not available to assist in stopping the NZ advance.
