HEIA SAFARI! - The Afrikakorps By Nicolas Trudgian


During a concerted effort to prevent the advance of British and American forces in North Africa, elements of the 10th Panzer Division Army Group 'Afrika' counter-attack through a rock-strewn, sunparched valley in Northern Tunisia in spring 1943. Overhead, air support is provided by the Ju87D's of St.G 3 and the formidable Fw190A fighters of II./JG2 - units that had been drafted in from Europe as specialists in ground attack and dogfighting.

The Panzer III and IV tanks portrayed in the picture, though small compared with later German Tanks, were the workhorses of the German Panzer Divisions and in Africa played a vital role in the cut-and-thrust armoured battles of 1941 and 1942. The 75mm long barrelled Panzer IV, called 'Special' by the Allies, was particularly feared as it was capable of destroying any Allied tank at range.

Although ultimately defeated, the exploits of the Afrika Korps in the desert, especially under the command of Field Marshall Rommel, earned widespread respect and taught valuable lessons to the Allies for subsequent combat in mainland Europe.
