In the autumn of 1942, British, Commonwealth and Allied forces fought across the Western Desert and throughout the Mediterranean against the combined Axis forces of Germany and Italy. Allied efforts on land, sea and in the air resulted in victory both at El Alamein and subsequently across North Africa more generally, with major political and strategic consequences for all involved.
After seventy-five years it is time to re-evaluate the importance, impact and outcome of the Battles of El Alamein alongside a wider reappraisal of the war in the Mediterranean in 1942.
Such questions and issues form the basis of this major international conference to be held at the University of Wolverhampton in September 2017, hosted by the University’s Department of History, Politics and War Studies.
The conference will lead to an edited collection to be published by Helion.
The highlights of the conference will include:
