Alamein Station, July 1st 1942: Rommel believed he had the 8th Army on the run and that he could break easily through the opposition and continue in triumph all the way to Alexandria and Cairo. He drew up plans to send the DAK on an end run to the south, as at Gazala and Mersa Matruh. He knew his weary troops could not withstand a protracted battle and with only 55 panzers left he wanted a swift end to hostilities. Here, though, things did not go right from the start, the enemy were not where expected, the Desert Air Force threw wave after wave of aircraft at the DAK, and his men were getting more and more exhausted.
