El Alamein, Egypt, 25 October 1942: Things heated up in the Kidney Ridge sector soon after first light on 25 October. British units began to feel for German defended localities, behind the minefield 'battle outposts' were Rommel hoped to destroy whatever enemy elements that succeeded in penetrating his Devil's Gardens. His first move came in the form of a successful deployment of the Pakfront. The British overnight attack on Point 33 was stopped cold when six leading Shermans were shot up by the anti-tank screen. Von Thoma then began the next step in the effort to throw back the British attack. The entire sector of 1st Armoured, including the fire that resulted in 'terrible carnage' of 7th Rifle Brigade in the Australian infantry positions, was targeted by heavy German shelling. After German command tanks probed forward at noon the whole frontage of the Kidney sector was struck with numerous, but poorly coordinated, armoured attacks, mounted by 15th Panzer and the Littorio Division. In a tactical sense all the usual German skill was in evidence; but the attacks were made piecemeal, at varying places and at different times. All failed and led to considerable Axis losses. The last and heaviest attack was mounted with fifty-five tanks and fell upon the 9th Lancers and the Bays, the latter down to only three Shermans. Nevertheless, the attack was defeated decisively, the Germans leaving the field after losing eighteen tanks. These were the first of many reversals Rommel's panzers would receive in the Kidney sector...
