Captured Film of Romel's Afrika Korps

398 ratings | 61441 views
A behind the scenes look at the German Africa Corps (German: Deutsches Afrikakorps, DAK listen (help·info)), or just the Afrika Korps, was the German expeditionary force in Libya and Tunisia during the North African Campaign of World War II. The reputation of the Afrika Korps is synonymous with that of its first commander Erwin Rommel, who later commanded the [1] Panzer Army Africa which evolved into the German-Italian Panzer Army (Deutsch-Italienische Panzerarmee) and Army Group Africa, all of which Afrika Korps was a distinct and principal component. Throughout the North African campaign, the Afrika Korps fought against Allied forces until its surrender in May 1943. Romel threatened the access to oil and that was now the lifeblood of any military. Keeping the oil flowing meant defeating Romel and this required mobility that only motor transport could provide.

Fragen Sie Ihre deutschen Vorfahren aus Rommels Armee, wie sie von der tunesischen Bevölkerung unterstützt wurden, als sie vor der Koalitionsarmee standen

Hitler threw them away, just like he did the men in the Russian invasion, and the defenders in France by constantly overriding the ground commanders. After sabotaging them until they had to surrender of die uselessly, he blamed the soldiers and commented, 'I have no further interest in the Afrika Corps.' There was a reason why both the Russians and the British refused to help the German Generals assassinate Hitler.

the lucky ones , they fought a clean war and spent the last 3 years of it in captivity in Canada until the madness was over , i wonder what they thought of hitler when they went home and the country they left was now rubble .

War should never be celebrated. It is after all a failure of human intelligence.

Ralph Raffles - can't make an omelette without cracking a few eggs, mate. In all seriousness tho, the history of all generations, from every culture & civilization, prove that war is unfortunately within our nature.

I can't comment further except to say the people of Italy suffered terribly. Led by a facist who promised second rise of roman empire. Instead he gave them death and distruction. Just like Hitler promised the German people. They in turn could not give their hearts to a dictator

Dad said German soldiers were real good. Training and disciplined. Italian soldiers did not want to be there. They are lovers not fighters. The only heros on italian army were the sandwiches.

The afrika korps never commited war crimes and actually they are called heroes erwin rommel is in germany still buried
CBM 215 (6 months ago)
And how did Rommel die. Required to commit suicide by his own side. Even Rommel could not stomach the Fuhrer. So who was Rommel fighting for: not the Fuhrer, not Germany, must have been for himself?
