S of Alam Halfa Ridge, 30km SE of El Alamein, Egypt: [Best played as Allied] Once General Montgomery assumed command of the British 8th Army in Egypt, he immediately set about preparing to meet the expected German attack on the Alamein Line. It was the beginning of the final struggle for North Africa. On 30 August, Rommel attacked in the south, preferring a mobile battle to that of a frontal assault along the coast. This was exactly the kind of move Montgomery had prepared for and two armoured brigades were in position to bushwhack Rommel's mobile formations. By September 1st the 15th Panzer Division was feeling its way north toward Alam Halfa Ridge when the tanks of the newly arrived 8th Armoured Brigade were sighted approaching from the east through the El Agram Depression, without infantry or artillery support. Kampfgruppe Wossner, guarding the division's right flank, threw out the usual anti-tank screen and prepared to teach yet one more British brigade a deadly lesson in desert warfare!
