This Day in the Short History of American Defeats by Nazis
An MG 34 is pictured above, ready for long range fire.
Note that in both cases the principle Allied country involved had been at war for about a year at the time of the battle.
ps. Have you read Rick Atkinson's An Army at Dawn? Well researched and adequately written; I'd recommend it as a history of the US Army in North Africa.
