Desert Victory DVD

The longest chase in military history, the British Eighth Army's pursuit of Rommel's Afrika Korps from El Alamein to Tripoli, is shown via authentic footage. Of the 26 cameramen who filmed Desert Victory, four were killed, six wounded and seven captured. Tobruk was actually taken by the film unit, which arrived several hours before the fighting forces. Directed by colonel David MacDonald of the Army Photographic Unit, Desert Victory was important as a propaganda film, bringing home to English audiences the first evidence of a turning point in the North Africa war.

United Kingdom, 1943, B&W, 60 minutes.
