Sergeant-major, 7th Bersaglieri Regiment, ‘Trento’Motorised Division Battle of El Alamein 1942

The Battle of El Alamein, from 23 October to 5 November 1942, was one of the largest battles involving the western allies in the whole of the war with Germany. El Alamein was part of the series of battles that saw the British Commonwealth forces advancing and retreating across the coastal plain and desert hinterland of North Africa from 1940 to 1943. The prize for the Axis (German and Italian forces under the command of the German general, Erwin Rommel) was Egypt and the Suez Canal. The destruction of the Axis forces in the Theatre was the focus of Allied operations. El Alamein was, in effect the closest the Axis came to achieving their goal. Once that battle was over, the Axis forces were in continual retreat until finally destroyed, in Tunisia on 11 May 1943, by the westward advancing 8th Army and the Allied Forces coming east from the Torch Landings.
At El Alamein the ‘Trento’ fought south of Kidney Ridge, facing the infantry attacks of British 30 corps; it was effectively destroyed.

1942年的艾拉敏戰役是二戰大戰役之一, 北非戰役在1942年進入其最高潮。這個戰役是從1940年9月即已開始,義大利雖享有數量優勢,但累戰累敗,希特勒遂不得不派隆美爾前往救援。隆美爾在1941年中不僅穩住戰局,使義大利人不至於被逐出北非,而且還一再贏得局部性的勝利。但很可惜他的實力太有限而希特勒也不重視地中海戰場,所以也就不可能獲得任何重大的戰果。1941年的北非戰役可算是標準的拉鋸戰,但1942年卻是具有決定性的一年。在西方整個戰潮的起伏都是以地中海為中心。10月底在蒙哥馬利指揮之下的英軍發動反攻,此即所謂「艾拉敏」會戰,終於憑藉物資優勢擊敗了沙漠之狐。
