THE DAY ROMMEL WAS STOPPED: The Battle of Ruweisat Ridge, 2 July 1942
Though the second battle of El Alamein is often described as decisive, the lesser known first battle of Alamein, or Ruweisat Ridge, was actually the more pivotal of the two encounters. The author argues that the tide was turned on July 2nd, 1942 when Rommel's tanks withdrew. He should know--he was there.
