Description by Allegro:

This outstanding 3-DVD collection is from the landmark television series Battlefi eld. Each disc features portraits of leaders and commanders, explanation of weapons and tactics, a review of the political and military situation before the battle, and the story of the battle itself.
The Battle for the Mediterranean
This is the story of the crucial battles for control of the Mediterranean, North Africa,
and the irreplaceable oil fi elds of the Middle East. The program covers the great battles between the Italian Navy and British Navy, the campaigns in the North African desert between Rommel's Afrika Korp and the British 8th Army, and Britain's struggle to retain its control of Malta.
El Alamein
"Before Alamein we never had a victory. After Alamein we never had a defeat." Winston Churchill's words illustrate clearly why the two battles fought near the Egyptian coastal town in the western desert during 1942 were a turning point of World War II.
The Battles for Tunisia
The campaign in Tunisia saw the battles that finally ended the brutal war in the desert. The arrival of the British 1st Army gave the Allies a six-to-one numerical advantage in troops and a fi fteen-to-one superiority in tanks, guns, and aircraft. Eventually, all German troops in Tunisia surrendered.
