Historical Background:
While the 15.Panzer Division fought against the 4th Armoured Brigade, the 21.Panzer Division who advanced toward Bir el Harmat found on its way the 22nd Armoured Brigade. It was the second clash of tanks in this morning and once again the advantage was for the Germans. The British armoured brigade withdrew after having lost about thirty tanks and several guns in the battle. However, the 21.Panzer Division had suffered too heavy losses, due to the new Allied tank, M3 Grant.
