The North African Campaign Of World War II


Many factors posessed the continual potential to be decisive in resolving the North African conflict in the Second World War; and some did determine the outcome of certain operations, but the Allied triumph in the Mediterranean, where Malta and North Africa were successfully, in contrast to the Axis forces who were starved of essential supplies such as fuel, ammunition and armour, was decisive in bringing about the Allied victory in 1943. The struggle for supplies was as much a part of warfare in the Second World War as those factors given a higher status in history such as heroic people and momentus battles, indeed it was in this arena that the conflict was won or lost.
