Erwin Rommel versus Alan Cunningham: A British army under Cunningham seeks to relieve the garrison at Tobruk, besieged by an Axis army under Rommel. Cunningham’s attack quickly runs into trouble at Sidi Rezegh, forcing the Tobruk garrison to come to its relief instead. Will Rommel exploit British mistakes and repulse yet another ill-fated British offensive?
