Historical Background:
In January 1942, Rommel counter-attacked the British near Tobruk. Concentrating forces near Gazala, the British established a series of strong points between Bir Hakeim and the Mediterranean coast....
Italians attacked in the center as Rommel held armored forces in reserve. British were confident this was the main attack and brought in armor to meet it. This would allow Rommel to send his tanks south and attack from the flank.

The stage is set, the curtain is rising, and you're on. Break a leg.
