Panzergruppe Afrika Intelligence Assessment – 18 November 1941

I will try to be disciplined and post these on a daily basis now, for every day of the campaign. Can’t promise that I will be able to maintain this…

18.11.

Almost complete wireless silence of the English units. Air reconnaissance could not be flown due to the bad weather, airfields of the Luftwaffe are muddied up, Uadis are carrying high water. On the afternoon of 18.11. 21.Panzer-Div. reports clash of reconnaissance group with strong enemy reconnaissance forces (see attachment).

Thus the first day of CRUSADER ended with Panzergruppe none the wiser about what was going on.
