The Shermans spread out in a wide V formation. Easy Company formed the middle of the line, with Dog Company to their left and Fox Company to their right. They were the cavalry, charging to the rescue of their stranded compatriots, surrounded by the Germans in the hills east of the town of Sidi Bou Zid.
This would be the battalion's first taste of real combat, and they were nervous but confident as they advanced at full speed across the barren, rocky earth. The tall cloud of dust thrown up by their tracks made it difficult to see, totally blocking out the half-tracks of the armoured infantry following behind them.
Without warning, a tank burst into flames in a resounding explosion louder even than the bass rumble of the tanks' powerful nine-cylinder rotary engines. A hidden line of German anti-tank guns had opened fire, the long-barreled 88-millimetre guns perfectly positioned to ambush the Amerrican tank formation from two sides. Crewman hastily buttoned up their tanks, closing the hatches and further reducing the visibility as the commandsers strained to spot a target through the dust, as the gunners prepeared to retaliate. The battle was joined, and the untested American tankers were about to recieve their baptism of fire.
The Allies have the fascists on the run un north Africa, but the fight is not over yet. The United States is the newest army to enter the war. They boast some of the best tanks in the world. backed up by well-equipped infantry, either marching to battle on foot riding in half-tracks, and the latest deadly tank destroyers. Their troops are inexperienced, but they have trained hard and are eager to prove themselves. They will need to learn quickly, as they face a cunning and battle-hardened enemy.
