El Alamein is one of the most famous battles in the Second World War, fought between the British forces, led by Lieutenant-General Bernard Law Montgomery, and the Axis forces, led by Field Marshall Erwin Rommel. After the penetration of the German and Italian Forces in Egypt, based on the precise goal to advance up to the Suez Canal, the British Army started to adopt a strategic plan based on the prevention of further enemy advancing toward the cities of Alexandria and Cairo. The Axis’s long supply lines and the lack of reinforcements, joined to the 8th Army’s superiority in men and vehicles were the assumptions for Montgomery’s great offensive successfully launched on October 23, 1942 (codename Lightfoot). El Alamein was a turning point of the North African campaign leading to the capitulation of Italian-German forces in Tunisia in May 1943.
