Aspects of the event
On 26 February 1943, a fierce battle occurred by the Sidi N'sir railway station in the Tunisian hills. British infantry and artillery faced a German armoured battle group including all available Tiger tanks. Terrible weather, minefields and artillery limited the Germans' mobility, obliging them to spend the day clearing British positions from the hills before they could attack the guns. This delay ensured the failure of the attack on Beja, and changed the course of the war in Tunisia.
