Description

The North African campaign of November 1942-May 1943 was a baptism of fire for the US Army. After relatively straightforward landings, the US II Corps advanced into Tunisia to support operations by the British 8th Army. Rommel, worried by the prospect of an attack into his rear, decided to exploit the inexperience of the US Army and strike a sudden blow against their overextended positions around the Kasserine Pass. However, due to US resilience the Germans were unable to exploit their victory, and later attacks such as at El Guettar were bloodily repulsed as the US Army began to coalesce into an effective fighting force.
