Following its crushing defeat at the Battle of Gazala in June 1942, the British 8th Army retreated east towards Egypt. Reaching the border, its commander, Lieutenant General Neil Ritchie, elected not to make a stand but to continue falling back to Mersa Matruh approximately 100 miles to the east.
Establishing a defensive position based on fortified "boxes" that were linked by minefields, Ritchie prepared to receive Field Marshal Erwin Rommel's approaching forces. On June 25, Ritchie was relieved as commnader and General Claude Auchinleck, selected to take personal control of the 8th Army. Concerned that the Mersa Matruh line could be outflanked to the south, Auchinleck decided to retreat another 100 miles east to El Alamein.
