Operation Torch was the code name for the British-American invasion of North Africa during World War II. The Soviet Union had pressed the United States and United Kingdom to open a second front to reduce the pressure of German forces on the Soviet troops.

The American commanders favored Operation Sledgehammer, landing in Occupied Europe as soon as possible, the British commanders believed that such a course would end in disaster. An attack on North Africa was proposed instead, which would clear the Axis powers, improve naval control of the Mediterranean Sea, and prepare for an invasion of Southern Europe in 1943.

President Franklin Roosevelt suspected the African operation would rule out an invasion of Europe in 1943 but agreed to support Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
