The fate of Axis soldiers was sealed by an order emanating from the Fuhrerbunker in Rastenburg: To the Army Group Afrika The German people expect you to fight to the last bullet. One place where such an effort was still taking place was along the Miliana River. Here, tattered remnants of the 19th FlaK Division, a handful of soldiers from the former Ramcke Parachute Brigade and a few 88mm guns held out on the Jebel Achkel, north of Mateur. Their foes, the Gurkhas of the 4th Indian Division, were battle trained, well-rested, and abundantly supplied. No matter the advantages, the fabled 88mm gun was still a dangerous anti-personnel weapon.
