Sir. Ricco’s WWII Tournament Series Presents…
WWII Gazala – The Fox Hunt
Time: May 26 – June 21, 1942
Location: Gazala, near Tobruk, Libya
Story: The Battle of Gazala was an important battle of the World War II Western Desert Campaign, fought around the port of Tobruk in Libya from May 26 to June 21, 1942. The combatants on the Axis side were the Panzer Army Afrika, consisting of German and Italian units and commanded by the "Desert Fox" Colonel-General Erwin Rommel; the Allied forces were the Eighth Army, commanded by Major General Neil Ritchie under the close supervision of the Commander-in-Chief Middle East, General Sir Claude Auchinleck. The battle ended in a costly victory for the Axis. Devoid of effective armoured forces in subsequent battles, Rommel was unable to pursue and decisively defeat the British in Egypt.
