On 11 November, the British 36th Infantry Brigade had landed unopposed at Bougie but supply shortages delayed their arrival at Djedjelli until 13 November. During the first half of January, Anderson had with mixed results kept constant pressure through limited attacks and reconnaissance in strength. However, this came too late to affect the fighting on land because the armoured elements of 10th Panzer Division had already arrived. New forward airfields were built to improve air support. Il generale Giraud si incontrò con il generale Eisenhower a Gibilterra solo il 7 novembre; egli apprese che lo sbarco avrebbe avuto luogo il giorno seguente e che egli non avrebbe affatto assunto il comando supremo delle forze alleate. Il generale von Arnim, coadiuvato dal generale Ziegler e dal capo di stato maggiore, generale Pomtow, intendeva continuare con i suoi attacchi limitati ed era in fase di pianificazione un'azione contro il raggruppamento americano a Sidi Bou Zid; tuttavia alla fine di gennaio 1943 arrivò sul teatro tunisino il feldmaresciallo Rommel che aveva finalmente completato con successo la lunga ritirata dei resti della Panzerarmee Afrika da El Alamein lungo l'intera costa libica.

Dopo lunghe discussioni e forti contrasti tra i dirigenti delle due potenze, infine il Presidente statunitense Franklin Roosevelt diede il suo consenso nonostante la persistente ostilità dei principali generali americani, soprattutto per la sua volontà di dare la priorità alla sconfitta della Germania nazista e per il suo desiderio di far entrare in campo il prima possibile le truppe americane. Anche se queste missioni costituirono solo il 5% del totale, costarono la perdità di due unità (Malocello[28] e Pancaldo[29]) e di 264 uomini. Further south, on 15 November, a US parachute battalion made an unopposed drop at Youks-les-Bains, capturing the airfield and advanced to take the airfield at Gafsa on 17 November.[22]. Even the US defeat at Kasserine may have been paradoxically advantageous; Rommel and the Axis were lulled into a false impression of US capabilities, while the Americans learned valuable lessons, and made positive changes in their command structure and tactics.[88]. The French had earlier constructed a 20 kilometres (12 mi) wide and 30 kilometres (19 mi) deep series of defensive works known as the Mareth Line along the plain, to defend against an Italian invasion from Libya. A further attack early on 23 February was again beaten back. Major-General Count Theodor von Sponeck, commander of the 90th Light Division, had surrendered unconditionally to the 2nd New Zealand Division, after threatening to fight till the last round. No serious disruption was caused to Allied plans, except that the first attack of the offensive, by IX Corps, was delayed by four hours from 4:00 a.m. on 22 April.[77]. However, IX Corps on the right would first attack north-east with, by speed of movement, the intention of getting in behind the Medjez position and disrupting their armoured reserves. By late March the British IX Corps HQ (Lieutenant-General John Crocker) had arrived to join the British V Corps (Lieutenant-General Charles Allfrey) in commanding the expanded army.

Coningham found that the air organisation in Tunisia was that of the Western Desert in 1941 when he had first assumed command of the Desert Air Force. Coningham unified the British and American operational commands and trained them in new operational practices. This had the intended side effect of improving the fire control of the already-strong US artillery. The 4th Infantry Division joined the fighting, taking position on the left of the 78th Division and pushing toward Sidi Nsir.[76]. In between, there were only a few easily defended passes through the Atlas Mountains. Sorsero subito notevoli contrasti riguardo alle aree di sbarco del corpo di spedizione alleato; gli americani temevano un possibile contrattacco tedesco attraverso Gibilterra o un intervento in guerra a fianco dell'Asse della Spagna e quindi proposero di effettuare lo sbarco principale sulla costa atlantica del Marocco.

This attack by the Manteuffel Division made good progress across the French-held, lightly defended hills between Cap Serrat and the railway town of Sedjenane. I combattimenti iniziarono il 17 marzo 1943 con l'offensiva del II corpo d'armata americano che, al comando del generale George Patton cercò di sfondare in direzione della costa tunisina, ma gli attacchi a Maknassy furono ripetutamente respinti dalle deboli ma combattive unità italo-tedesche. After three days of to-and-fro fighting, with ammunition running low and Axis forces now holding adjacent high ground, the Longstop position became untenable and the Allies were forced to withdraw to Medjez,[34] and by 26 December 1942 the Allies had withdrawn to the line they had set out from two weeks earlier, having suffered 20,743 casualties. Weber's force was to advance in three groups: a central group moving west toward Medjez el Bab; a second to the north advancing south-west, on the route from Mateur to Béja (which was some 40 km (25 mi) west of Medjez) and the third group pushing west 25 miles (40 km) south of Medjez.

The Hermann Göring Division supported by tanks from 10th Panzer Division penetrated up to 5 miles (8.0 km) at some points but could not force a general withdrawal and eventually returned to their lines. The slow build up had brought Allied force levels up to a total of 54,000 British, 73,800 American and 7,000 French troops. [72] In the Southern attack Kampfgruppe Audorff made some progress west toward Medjez el Bab but a British ad hoc force, Y Division was able to repel the Southern attack; particularly after two Churchill tanks shot up an entire German transport column at a place called 'Steamroller' Farm. [56] In a dispirited meeting on 22 February with Kesselring, Rommel argued that faced with stiffening defences and the news that the Eighth Army's lead elements had finally reached Medenine, only a few kilometres from the Mareth Line, he should call off the attack and withdraw to support the Mareth defences, hoping that the Kasserine attack had caused enough damage to deter any offensive action from the west. In 1966, the British Official Historian I. S. O. Playfair wrote that. I tedeschi catturarono altri 1.047 prigionieri, 25 autoblindo e 15 cannoni[15].

Eisenhower appointed an air support commander, Brigadier General Laurence S. Kuter, for the whole front on 21 January.[39]. By 18 April, after attacks by Eighth Army from the south and flanking attacks by IX Corps and French XIX Corps, the Axis forces had been pushed into a defensive line on the north-east coast of Tunis, attempting to protect their supply lines but with little hope of continuing the battle for long. Combat Command C was ordered across country to relieve Sidi Bou Zid but were repelled with heavy losses. Close air support had also been weak (although this had been hampered by the generally poor weather conditions). La battaglia di El Guettar è una battaglia della seconda guerra mondiale combattuta durante la campagna di Tunisia.. Il conflitto vide opposti nel sud della Tunisia la 131a Divisione Corazzata Centauro del generale Carlo Calvi di Bergolo ed il II corpo d'armata statunitense al comando del generale Lloyd Fredendall..

Il 3 gennaio 1943 il generale von Arnim diede inizio al primo dei suoi contrattacchi; egli riteneva importante guadagnare terreno verso ovest e conquistare i valichi più importanti della Dorsale orientale tunisina per impedire eventuali offensive nemiche che avrebbero potuto mettere in pericolo la testa di ponte con un'avanzata fino alla costa mediterranea[11]. [12] At the end of November, naval Force K was reformed in Malta with three cruisers and four destroyers and Force Q formed in Bône with three cruisers and two destroyers. [26], The northern attack did not take place because torrential rain had slowed the build-up. The 10th Panzer Division rapidly lost 30 tanks and retreated out of the minefield. In grim hand-to hand fighting against the Hermann Göring Division, 334th Infantry and 15th Panzer Divisions, it took V Corps with the 1st, 4th and 78th Infantry Divisions, supported by army tanks and heavy artillery concentrations, eight days to penetrate 9.7 km (6 mi) and capture most of the Axis defensive positions. Concern over the vulnerability to flanking attacks prompted a further withdrawal west. The two Allied columns concentrated at Djebel Abiod and Béja, preparing for an assault on 24 November.
