WWII Africa
The outflanking movement to Nofilia, led by Sen. Freyberg, was one of the 8th Army’s most brilliant moves. Undertaken when Rommel was just leaving his strong positions at Agheila, Libya, Jan. 15, 1943 it plunged into his flank, accelerating his retreat and causing him great loss in armour, the enemy was completely taken by surprise – a fact which speaks for the brilliance of the action, in which a column compressing thousands of vehicles was moved across the desert thought to be impassable by motor vehicles. Most of the traveling was done by night, without lights, in the daytime the vehicles, heavily camouflaged, completely escaped enemy air observation. This picture was taken during the action. Some of the ground was broken and rocky, the enemy tried to defend it during this surprise attack, but infantry rushed over it overwhelming the enemy positions. (AP Photo)
