The upper left, "On 26..." and "Objective" look kind of dull. Though they do match and correlate with the bottom legend, the text seems to be crying out for a little bit of flare and flash.
Fixed.I like your legend on the left, though a few of the numbers look off center from each other...I'm not sure if they really are or if it's my eyes.
As for the map interior of the map specifically, I dislike the image style mix... That isn't clear...but let me try to explain! Compare the Cauldron and Gazala image style to say the Tanks, Mortars, Air Fields, the Tents...etc. There is a difference in style...and I think this clashes.
The Air Fields look a little sub-par, and the tanks somewhat also, though to less of a degree. Mortars could be included into that also. Tents look alright,
The contrast between soft and subtle and the some of the harder lines could be worked on, namely the square boxes.
I like the roads and the axis movement lines. The allies blue dots don't sell me, but I'm not sure what else you can really do there...
Lastly, I'd also try to keep flag size on the map consistent, just for the sake of it!

Those who like the complex games will love it... I'm still trying to wrap my brain around Pearl.

The bombardments (although it is now clear which territories can be bombarded) also don;t work very well as many of the territories they can bombard they can just attack.

This definitely doesn't come off as user friendly. I feel it's less confusing then Pearl Harbor, but not by a lot.
There's just so many colours and things going on here.
