English | Documentary | Size: 1.17 GB

The story of the turning point in World War II in North Africa.
When the British army looks set to defeat Mussolini’s Italian forces, Hitler sends reinforcements to fight against the British; the Afrika Korps led by General Rommel. The Desert Fox is on winning form until Montgomery, the British commander, sets up a plan to crush his opponent and manages to defeat Rommel.
The Afrika Korps led by General Rommel seemed invincible, but that changed in November 1942 when the British and American armies launched a counterattack. The Allies finally won two key victories, beating Rommel at the Battle of El Alamein, and then landing in North Africa.
After so many retreats, the Allies now had the upper hand and drove the Axis forces out of Africa in May 1943. The tide had finally turned, but the cost was high, with revenge attacks on civilians, the horrific treatment of prisoners of war, antiSemitic persecutions, and so on. After the Americans landed in North Africa, the Axis powers had to surrender and put an end to the Desert War.
Far from a chivalrous confrontation, the Desert War was a bloody conflict in which thousands of soldiers battled in extreme conditions, during operations in which leaders like Eisenhower, Patton, Montgomery, and Rommel – who would each go on to have a bright future – distinguished themselves.
This full archive documentary looks back at the great military operations in North Africa, from the disasters in Tobruk and Kasserine to the triumph in Tunis. This was a little-known theater of operations, where a global conflict was fought and won.
