In the sands of North Africa during the early years of World War II, German Field-Marshal Erwin Rommel burnished his reputation as the Desert Fox. After a string of successes, Rommel's fortunes began to sour with the battles of El Alamein, where the British under Bernard Montgomery halted Axis expansion in the fall of 1942, followed days later by the Americans' Torch landings in Morocco and Algeria. As the Americans drove the Germans into Tunisia from the west and the British from the east, Rommel routed US forces at Kasserine Pass, but logistical difficulties and the erosion of weapons quality ultimately proved too much to overcome. After his last-ditch attack at Medenine was repulsed, the Desert Fox was forced to evacuate, leaving much of his fabled force to Allied captivity.
