    Dear all

    It gives me great pleasure to announce that my article on the tank battle between 4th Armoured Brigade and KG Stephan on 19 November 1941 has been published in Evert Kleynhans' journal Scientia Militaria.

    A reassessment of the tank battle between 4th Armoured Brigade and Panzerregiment 5 during Operation Crusader in North Africa on 19 November 1941 | Scientia Militaria - South African Journal of Military Studies - the whole issue is worth reading.

    I am very grateful to Evert, the very kind peer reviewers and his editing staff to give me the opportunity to get my scribblings out to a wider public.

    The article will hopefully provide new food for thought regarding what I consider some misconceptions about the overall situation on 19 November, as well as the comparative performance of the Panzer III and the Stuart.

    Happy reading.

    All the best

    An interesting read, especially for someone who has read little on the North African campaign for a long time. Curious to read of flooding in the desert and a mention of General Alan Cunningham, who after the Abyssinia / Ethiopia campaign success was quickly removed from a field command for the duration of the war.
