North Africa campaign operation

The North African Campaign began in June of 1940 and continued for three years, as Axis and Allied forces pushed each other back and forth across the desert. At the beginning of the war, Libya had been an Italian colony for several decades and British forces had been in neighboring Egypt since 1882.

To their west the French were dominant, occupying Tunisia, Algeria and French Morocco. The Italians launched a limited invasion of Egypt in September 1940, on December the same year British counterattack and captured 130.000 Italians. Then Germany send more soldiers where several brutal pushes happened back and forth. Operation Torch General Bernard Montgomery took over at that point as commander of Allied forces in North Africa.

While British troops in Egypt were pushing the Germans west, U.S. forces led the invasion of French North Africa with the code name Operation Torch. There were specific objectives to the operation — to gain French-controlled Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia as a base for enlisting the French empire in the war, to assist the British in the Libyan Desert, to open the Mediterranean to Allied shipping, and to provide a stepping stone for subsequent operations.

The Allies hoped to force the Axis armies out of Africa In fact, this amphibious operation inevitably postponed the landing in France until 1944, but at the same time it allowed the United States to complete mobilization of its immense industrial and manpower resources for the titanic air and ground battles that characterized the Allied campaigns of 1944.

D-Day: Biggest victory for Allies

The D-Day invasion of Normandy, France took place on June 6th, 1944 it was one of the most important military operation to the western allies succussed during world war II. It was the largest seaborne invasion in history. Twelve Allied nations provided fighting units that participated in the invasion, including Australia, Canada, Belgium, France, Czechoslovakia, Greece, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. This war was turned around and from that day on the Germans started losing the war. By the end of June , more than 850,00 US, British, and Canadian troops had landed on shore on the beaches of Normandy. On D-Day the landings were so strong that only 4% of the sand in the beach of Normandy is composed of metal particles. Although they had got a foothold in France by the end of D-Day, allied forces were for a while at risk of being pushed back into the sea. They had to keep building up their forces faster than the Germans could reinforce theirs. Interviewer: A British soldier Questions being asked: A) How do you feel about war? B) Did everything go us planed? Answer A: The war is the most tragest place you could ever imagine .There are bombs, guns, swords and lots more dangerous equipment that you have to use. There were over 1,000,000 millions of people dead from both sides Answer B : Partly due to poor weather and visibility, bombers failed to take out key artillery, particularly at Omaha Beach. Many paratroopers were dropped far off their marks and became vulnerable to German snipers. And during the land invasion, a critical fleet of marine tanks sunk in stormy seas and failed to make it ashore. Despite the setbacks, Allied troops pushed through and by pure grit, got the job done.
