Djebel Ousselat, 110km SSW of Tunis, Tunisia: [Best played as Allied] As part of German General von Arnim's efforts to retake the initiative in Tunisia (Operation EILBOTE I), a mixed German-Italian force under Colonel Weber was dispatched to strike into the rear of the French XIX Corps holding the southern passes in the Eastern Dorsal Range. Spearheading the Axis attack, Kampfgruppe Lueder's infantry and tanks thrust south from Pont du Fahs through Hir Moussa, cutting the Allied supply lines and wreaking havoc in the French rear areas before taking up a blocking position east of Ousseltia near Djebel Ousselat. For Brigadier General Robinett, commanding Combat Command B, 1st US Armored Division, the quiet afternoon of January 19th changed suddenly when General Fredendall contacted him at his bivouac near Sbeitla with instructions to move at once and secure the approaches to Kairouan Pass east of Ousseltia. It was the beginning of several days of clashes between CCB and Kampfgruppe Lueder, which would determine the fate of the French formations holding the mountain passes.

Interesting mix of forces on both sides. The Americans seem to have the numbers but the Germans the firepower especially with the Tigers. The fact that the German troops start fixed hampers the defensive preparation a bit.
