Prelude to Alamein


August 30th, 1942. In a desperate bid to destroy the buildup of forces under new British commander Bernard Law Montgomery, Field Marshal Erwin Rommel launches his vaunted Afrika Korps at the southern flank of the Alamein line.


Prelude to Alamein depicts 21st Panzer at sunrise in the western desert after a night of negotiating treacherous minefields and dodging sporadic bombing from the British Wellingtons. The battle would rage for another week, but Rommel’s last bid to grab Egypt was doomed to failure.
