Kasserine Pass Challenge

Sidi Bou Zid Challenge

Tankers!

For this month's Challenge tournament, we're bringing the battle to Sand River. We're attempting to capture some of the atmosphere of the fighting that took place in the arid lands of Tunisia during February of 1943. It was the first major clash between American and German forces. Unfortunately, the German forces were ultimately the victors of the Battle of Kasserine Pass.

Here's your chance to reenact a bit of history, and maybe even rewrite it. Either way, it's your opportunity to slug it out with a few other tankers for some serious gold!
