The impossible German Defence during the Second Battle of El Alamein.
Historical background: In the summer of 1942 Axis forces operating in North Africa ran out of steam in front of El Alamein while trying to advance into Egypt and seize control of Suez Canal. Chronically lacking fuel due to overstretched supply lines and Allied control of Mediterranean sea, the only thing Germans and Italians could do was to deploy minefields and brace themselves for the inevitable British offensive. Commander of the British 8th Army, Montgomery, resisted calls from impatient Churchill to attack, and instead relentlessly kept stockpiling huge amount of resources, eventually vastly overpowering Axis forces in every possible way. Rommel knew that the lack of fuel meant that he could not do any grand maneuvering, his one defensive counter-strike with armored divisions had to be decisive to stop the Allied attack and prevent the total collapse of Axis position in North Africa.

In order to be a victorious commander, you must learn to coordinate your attacks in two ways. First, as adjacent units give support to an attacking unit, keep your units in groups in order to gain local superiority. Secondly, it is rarely the best idea to use brute force when it is possible to encircle the enemy and cut off its supply lines instead.
