Description

This educational module examines the role of the North African Campaign in the fall of Germany and the end of World War II. This campaign held great strategic importance and allowed the Allies to gain ground into Germany and Italy. In addition to its strategic importance, the North African Campaign also illustrated the significance of colonial relations and resources during the war. The North African Campaign is therefore a battle over colonialism rather than a purely logistical second front.
