|15Feb1943. 0200 Hours. A cold night with little progress ...|
But at least those units were in contact. The rest of the 21st PzDiv. (PzGren and artillery) was still snailing its way forward to Sidi bou Zid along highway 125. Nothing is more shameful than loosing a fight because you didn't show up.

|15Feb1943. 1400 hours. The mop up between Sidi bou Zid and Poste de Lessouda is complete. Both the 10th and 21st PzDiv have started regrouping and are preparing to advance west.|
During the night hours we continued to make sporadic contact with the enemy, just enough to figure out their axis of attack. We pivoted and oriented north and paused to recover from fatigue and lack of fuel.
I really wish I could have fought the American armor! The scenario ended at 0800 on 16Feb1943, just short of that tank battle ...
|The result of the battle was a draw. I guess I was heavily penalized in points by the loss of 36 vehicles.|
