75 years ago, a pivotal battle raged between Montgomery’s Eighth Army and Axis coalition forces led by Erwin Rommel. As part of this special issue of History of War, we’re pleased to present 50 pages dedicated to the Western Desert Campaign, including first-hand accounts of the Second Battle of El Alamein. Also, historian Rob Schaefer explores what it was like for the men of the Afrika Korps fighting in the harsh desert environment, and John Sadler questions whether General Claude Auchinleck’s defence in July 1942 was the real turning point for the Allies.
