Battle of El Alamein

A pivotal engagement of the North African campaign during World War II, the Battle of El Alamein, fought October 23 through November 4, 1942, and sometimes referred to as the Second Battle of El Alamein, resulted in a victory for General Bernard Montgomery and the British Eighth Army over the German and Italian forces of Panzerarmee Afrika led by General Erwin Rommel. The reinforced British and Commonwealth troops had been in retreat before pausing in the Egyptian desert about 50 miles west of the port city of Alexandria. With substantial reinforcements, the British launched their decisive attack against depleted Axis forces whose supply lines were tenuous at best. Subsequently, the British chased the Germans and Italians westward along the Mediterranean coast of Africa and across more than 1,000 miles of desert.
