Rommel's Second Offensive - Gazala and The Cauldron

Rommel launches his most brilliant offensive.  Although heavily outnumbered, he attacks Commonwealth forces at Gazala.  At one point, the Afrika Corps is surrounded and out of supplies, but Rommel hangs on turning defeat into victory.  He drives the Allies back, finally captures Tobruk and pushes the defeated British Eighth Army deep into Egypt.
