EIGHTH ARMY Personal Message from the Army Commander TO BE READ OUT TO ALL TROOPS 1 . The enemy is now advancing to attack us . This is because he is caught like a rat in a trap and he is hitting out in every direction trying to gain time to stave off the day of final defeat in North Africa . a 2. This is the very opportunity we want . Not only are we well equipped with everything we need , but in addition the soldiers of the Eighth Army have a fighting spirit and a morale which is right on the top line . 3. We will stand and fight the enemy in our present positions . There must be NO WITHDRAWAL anywhere , and of course , NO SURRENDER . The enemy has never yet succeeded in any attack against co - ordinated defensive layout , and he will not do so now . We have plenty of tanks , and provided the defended localities hold firm then we will smash the enemy attack and cause him such casualties that it will cripple him ; we will in fact give him a very " bloody nose . " IT WILL THEN BE OUR TURN TO ATTACK HIM . And having been crippled himself , he will be unable to stand up to our attack and we will smash right through him . 5. This attack of the enemy therefore really helps US , and is one more step forward towards the end of the war in North Africa . I did not expect for one moment that the enemy would attack us ; it seemed absurd . But he has done it , and we must show our gratitude in no uncertain way . 6. Let us show him what the famous Eighth Army can do . 7. Good luck to each one of you , and good hunting 4 . B. L. Montgomery , General , G.O.C. - in - C . , Eighth Army . Tunisia
