 Afrika Corps uniforms and text
The Afrika Corps is a textbook example of why the German Army was able to achieve the success it did, despite its handicaps.
The tropical uniform worn by the Afrika Corps varied widely in colour, depending on length of use, different manufacturers' batches, etc.; and the latitude tolerated in the desert armies of other nations was also observed in the German forces.
Either the continental-pattern shoulder straps and sleeve chevrons, or the tropical pattern straps and chevrons and the AFRIKAKORPS and AFRIKA cuff bands were all worn on the coat.

One such point is that some historians have claimed that the Afrika Korps boasted technologically superior tanks compared to the British.
The truth of the matter was that concentration of armour, the reason for the Korps success, was seen as having superior numbers, actually the Korps under the Desert Fox, concentrated its numbers against enemy formations one at a time, thereby neutralizing British superiority of numbers.
Afrika Korps also suffered tremendous losses in high ranking officers, Mr Mitcham investigates this point as well.

The Swiss Free Form allowed players to play as many matches as could be arranged during the Pre Con and WBC until the Friday 11pm cutoff, after which the four players with the best "three game" scores (including bonuses for strength of opponents defeated) made it into the single elimination semi-finals on Saturday morning.
