<em>Desert Victory</em> is a 1943 film produced by the British Ministry of Information, documenting the Allies' North African campaign against Field Marshall Erwin Rommel and the Afrika Korps. This documentary traces the struggle between General Erwin Rommel and Field MarshalBernard Montgomery, from the German's defeat at El Alamein to Tripoli. Like the famous "Why We Fight" series of films by Frank Capra, <em>Desert Victory</em> relies heavily on captured German newsreel footage. Many of the most famous sequences in the film have been excerpted and appear with frequency in History Channel and A&amp;E productions.
