Ian Paterson also talks about the "Axis Withdrawal" in December 1941
Ian Paterson, on his 7th Armoured Division site, has a narrative about the Axis withdrawal from around Tobruk in December 1941 that Robert Crisp is discussing in Brazen Chariots. Ian's narrative is at a higher level, necessarily, as Robert is talking about his personal experience while Ian is giving an overview. Ian also discusses, specifically, the period in mid-to-late December, which is useful in "Clearing Cyrenaica". The date we have reached in Brazen Chariots is 15 December, so this falls into the latter section.
