But that mountain range is steepest on the side toward Tricpii. Th** approaches I rom the British side are gradual and. therefore, the range is not as good a defense po; nion as some that Rommel already has passed.
But if he does not put up a real fight for Ti inch and attempts to escape along the coast into Tunisia, h*‘ will have given us the b<‘.st prize of the African front since Bengasi.
