One of the most famous British fighting formations in WWII was the 8th Army, which fought in the North African and Italian campaigns. Interestingly, it received its name because the French had previously fielded seven armies up to that point in WWII. Its fighting debut was on 17 November 1941 when it faced its nemesis, Erwin Rommel, for the first time. Under General Auchinleck, the 8th Army eventually halted the Afrika Korps at the First Battle of El Alamein, though the commander was to be replaced by Bernard Montgomery. It was under “Monty” that the 8th Army had decisive success against Rommel in the Second Battle of El Alamein (23 October – 5 November 1942), though at the cost of 25,000 Axis and 13,000 Allied casualties.
Not only are they ready to face Dragon’s Afrika Korps figures on a miniature sandy tableau, but they would make a perfect companion to Dragon’s new 1/35 scale Sherman III tank. The victory at El Alamein was a decisive moment in WWII, and it was orchestrated by two of the best war commanders. Modelers can now recreate it with these exciting figures produced by Dragon!
