Fresh and inexperienced American forces are rapidly building strength in Southern Tunisia in order to plan a breakthrough across the Tunisian plain and cut the Axis position in two. With the 8th British Army stalled in Libya due to an overextended supply line, Rommel and Arnim pool their mobile forces and launch a counterattack against the American II Corps. But Rommel and Arnim can't agree on the overall objective. Rommel wants to destroy the Americans and drive to the coast while Arnim wants to gain better defensive ground and dig in.
