March 1941 and the German’s with their Italian allies attack the Western Desert Force. In February 1941 El Agheila was taken by the WDF following the destruction of the tenth army during Operation Compass. The British halted and moved to deal with the Axis invasion of Greece. This gave the German Afrika Korps under Rommel a chance to arrive and launch an offensive which retook El Agheila.
