Description

Beautiful map of the Second Battle of El Alamein. The map shows the Counter Battery fire of the Eighty British Army led by Field Marshal Montgomery.

The Second Battle of El Alamein took place from the 23rd of October until the 11th of November 1942 near the small village of El Alamein. The battle was the turning point for the North African Campaign and prevented anymore intrusion by Rommel’s Afrika Korps into Egypt and the threat against the Suez Canal.

The opening salvo of the battle started with a 1000 gun creeping barrage, including a massive smoke bombardment to obscure the minefields from the Germans. This allowed the British Engineers to clear lanes for the on coming armoured forces.

At the end of the Battle the German forces had over 30,000 casualties and a full retreat out of Egypt.

    This is the latest nap I have purchased. Not knowing much about the background of this battle, the significance of it was excitedly explained to me. Buying for a map and battle enthusiast, this product hits the mark. Nathan always goes above and beyond to find and describe the perfect map for my search. Awesome, flawless, clear product that always exceeds my expectations!

    This map proved well researched and attractively mounted. It is the perfect addition to a professional display of battle plans. I recently visited the El Alemain battlefield and the map is more clearly drawn and displayed than anything I saw at the local museums. Thank you!
