[YT video] The Desert Fox | Rommel in North Africa 1941


Oct 2015
When Rommel arrived in North Africa, the odds were against him. Using 3D animations and a host of sources (listed below), this is the story of how the Desert Fox turned the tables on the British and Australian forces at Mersa Brega and threw them out of Italian Libya. (Except for Tobruk of course!)
