NotesImage 1: See LSE3201 for published cartoon. News: November 16: .. North Africa: The
British First Army, reinforced by mobile U.S. units, continued to push forward across the
Tunisian frontier. Gen. Eisenhower's G.H.Q. reported that small French military units had
begun to co-operate with the Eastern (Tunisian) and Central (Algerian) task forces, that a
French force had joined U.S. troops at Oran, and that clearance and maintenance of ports
and harbours was proceeding. It was also stated that 250 Germans and Italians of the Axis
Armistice Commissions in North Africa had been taken prisoner. The Stefani Agency announced
that Gen. Walter Nehring, Rommel's second-in-command in the Western Desert and a leading
German tank specialist, was commanding Axis forces in Tunisia... In Libya, the Eighth Army,
advancing on Benghazi both along the coast and by the road farther inland, recaptured Derna
and Mekili... [Keesing's Contemporary Archives p.5467] Image 2: See DL1942 for original
