Historical Background:
On November 29th and 30th it was tough going for the still largely green Allied Combat Command. The Allies had launched two unsuccessful attacks to take the town of Djedeida and clear a path for the march on Tunis. Then on December 1st before a third attack, the 10th Panzer Division, newly arrived from Italy, counterattacked in an attempt to clear the Allied forces around Chouigui and Terourba.

The Germans planned to first capture Chouigui and then strike toward Terourba. Aggressive Allied counterattacks however, prevented the German pincers from surrounding the town. After two days, the experienced German units and their successful tactics had beaten up the Allied forces which were forced to pull back to a position in the Terouba Gap.

This engagement marked the first armor clash between the Americans and Rommel's expanding North African forces.
