ACI Second Battle of El Alamein

The second battle of El Alamein, part of the Western Desert Campaign, gave the Allies the advantage over the Axis in Africa. On the evening of October 23, 1942, British Field Marshall Bernard Montgomery, in command of the Eighth Army, with personnel from Britain and the Commonwealth, launched an attack on German-held El Alamein.

The superiority of Allied forces, combined with the British aerial strength, pushed Nazi Generalfeldmarschall Erwin Rommel to divide his armored units. The Germans finally retreated from El Alamein, giving the Allies one of their first decisive victories of the conflict.
