PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

From the beginning of the war, the British had repeatedly landed ground troops in Europe only to hastily withdraw each time, while on the verge of a humiliating rout by Hitler's armies. For Britain's fiery leader, Winston Churchill, had enough. The British people and their Army needed a victory on land, somewhere, somehow, and they needed it now.

The opportunity to grab such a victory came in North Africa where troops of Italian dictator, Benito Mussolini, were trying to create an African empire for their ambitious leader who was determined, above all, not to be overshadowed by Hitler. Thus far, Mussolini had taken over two countries, Abyssinia and Libya, where his troops had easily rolled over the mostly defenseless inhabitants. Mussolini set his sights next on Egypt.

With 500,000 Italian troops at the ready, the only thing standing in his way was a small British force of 36,000 men, comprising the Western Desert Force, based in northern Egypt. Through a variety of strategic mistake, the British overcame the Italians who eventually surrendered 200,000 troops.

It was a stunning victory, just what Churchill had wanted. But it wouldn't last.
