Operation Crusader was boiling around the Sidi Rezeg area, and General Freyberg's New Zealand 6th Brigade was dangerously exposed. The Kiwis were perched on the Sidi Rezeg ridge and airfield, sandwiched between the German 155th Infantry Regiment on the next ridge to the south and the Italians to the north and west. Beyond the Bersaglieri Division to the west lay the 4th New Zealand Brigade. The Kiwi plan was a straight-forward night attack, westward along the crest of the Sidi Rezeg escarpment.
