Desert War

The desert skirmish rapidly became the fulcrum of Britain's struggle for survival against the Nazis in WW2. An exciting, insightful and often surprising account of one of the most celebrated campaigns of the Second World War - the war in North Africa. Compelling testimonies of veterans from both sides, seamlessly interwoven with archival footage and graphic dramatic recreations, bring the famous siege of Tobruk and the battle of El Alamein to life.
