Overview
-

Commanding the legendary Afrika Korps in the sands of North Africa during World War II, German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel burnished his reputation as the "Desert Fox.” After a string of early victories, Rommel's fortunes began to sour with the battles of El Alamein, where the British under Bernard Montgomery halted Axis expansion in the fall of 1942. Days later, U.S. forces landed in Morocco and Algeria and joined the campaign for Tunisia that ultimately forced the Desert Fox to evacuate and leave much of his fabled force to Allied captivity.
