Product Description

This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - African Campaign - Operation Compass. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

Operation Compass was the first big Allied military operation of the Western Desert Campaign during World War II. British and other Commonwealth forces attacked Italian forces in western Egypt and eastern Libya in December 1940, with great success.

The Western Desert Force with about 30,000 men, advanced from Mersa Matruh in Egypt on a 5 day raid on the Italian positions of the 10th Army, which had about 150,000 men in fortified posts around Sidi Barrani and in eastern Libya.

Following Italy's June 10, 1940, declaration of war on Great Britain and France, Italian forces in Libya began raiding across the border into British-held Egypt. These raids were encouraged by Benito Mussolini who wished the Governor-General of Libya, Marshal Italo Balbo, to launch a full scale offensive with the goal of capturing the Suez Canal.
