El Alamein could rightly take the credit for being the most famous battle of the North African campaign in WWII. In actual fact, there were two distinct battles in this end of the railway location in Egypt, the first from 1-27 July 1942, and the second from 23 October - 4 November of the same year. The second battle saw Generals Montgomery and Rommel facing each other, and many historians consider it a major turning point in WWII. It led Winston Churchill to comment: “The Germans have received back again that measure of fire and steel which they have so often meted out to others.” The second battle involved 220,000 Allied soldiers and 1100 Allied tanks pitted against 116,000 German soldiers and 559 German tanks.
