Product Description
This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - African Campaign - Battle of Gazala. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

In the wake of Operation Crusader in late 1941, General Erwin Rommel's German and Italian forces were compelled to retreat west to a new line at El Agheila. Assuming a new position behind a strong line of fortifications, Rommel's Panzer Army Afrika was not attacked by British forces under General Sir Claude Auchinleck and Major General Neil Ritchie. This was largely due to the British need to consolidate their gains and build a logistical network after an advance of over 500 miles. Largely pleased with the offensive, the 2 British commanders had succeeded in relieving the siege of Tobruk.

On the Allied side, this saw the arrival of new General Grant tanks which could match the German Panzer IV as well as improvements in coordination between the Desert Air Force and troops on the ground.

For his victory and the capture of Tobruk, Rommel was promoted to field marshal by Hitler. Assessing the position at Mersa Matruh, Auchinleck decided to abandon it in favor of a stronger one at El Alamein. Rommel assaulted this position in July but made no progress. A final effort was made the Battle of Alam Halfa in late August with no results.
