Operation Crusader continues:
Saturday, November 22, 1941: At Sidi Rezegh, the British engage the German 21st Panzer Division and are forced to draw their 7th and 22nd Brigades away from Tobruk. In a separate action, the 4th Armoured Brigade engages the 15th Panzer Division and loses heavily. The New Zealand Division, part of British 13th Corps, is moved into position to aid the British. The losses have been high for the British and the Germans now have superior numbers of tanks (over 170) to the British (less than 150).
