This is a 15 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - African Campaign - Battle of Kasserine Pass. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Battle of Kasserine Pass took place during the Tunisia Campaign of World War II. It was a series of battles fought around Kasserine Pass, a 2 mile wide gap in the Grand Dorsal chain of the Atlas Mountains in west central Tunisia.
The Axis forces involved, led by Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, were primarily from the Afrika Korps Assault Group, elements of the Italian Centauro Armored Division, 2 Panzer divisions detached from the 5th Panzer Army. The Allied forces involved came from the U.S Army's II Corps commanded by Major General Lloyd Fredendall, and the British 6th Armored Division commanded by Major-General Charles Keightley, which were part of the British 1st Army commanded by Lieutenant-General Kenneth Anderson.
While complete disaster had been averted, the Battle of Kasserine Pass was a humiliating defeat for US forces. Their first major clash with the Germans, the battle showed an enemy superiority in experience and equipment as well as exposed several flaws in the American command structure and doctrine.
After the fight, Rommel dismissed American troops as ineffective and felt they did not offer a threat to his command.
