Synopsis

Those who imagined that the arrival of a major American force in North Africa would immediately tip the balance against Rommel's Africa Korps were to be proved badly wrong. In what turned out to be a disastrously over-ambitious plan, the 1st (US) Army sailed across the Atlantic and went straight in the Operation Torch landings in Tunisia. Just how ill-prepared the GI Army and its generals were, became horrifically apparant at the Kasserine Pass.
