Africa El Alamein 1942

The battle of El Alamein marked the turning point in Britain's fortunes in World War II. There were three separate battles between July and November 1942, all of which were fought to halt the advance of Rommel's army towards the Suez Canal. The final battle at El Alamein, fought in October and November, saw the continous bombardment of the German line that Rommel was instructed to hold at all costs by Hitler himself. The Allies shattered the German defences and Rommel led a westward retreat in order to salvage what wasleft of the Afrika Korps.
