Description
 
George F. Howe (au); Richard W. Stephens (fw). Covers the first massive commitments of American forces in WW2. The continent of Africa became a gigantic testing ground of tactics, weapons, & training evolved through years of peace. The invasion stretched American resources to the limit. Two campaigns occurred there: Operation TORCH which liberated French N. Africa from Vichy French control, followed by a longer Allied effort to destroy all the military forces of the Axis powers in Africa. The latter concentrated in Tunisia, where the front at one time extended more than 375 miles. The final concentric thrust of American, British, & French ground & air forces was against two German & Italian armies massed in the vicinity of Bizerte & Tunis. Includes B&W photos & a portfolio of maps.
