In February 1941, the German 5th Light Division is dispatched to rinforce failing Italian military operations in North Africa. Assigned to lead this "Afrika Korps" is one of Germany's finest field officers: General Erwin Johannes Eugen Rommel.
Leading a series of brilliant offensives against British Commonwealth forces in Libya, Rommel earns the nickname "The Desert Fox." Yet, as he pushes to seize control of vital Middle Eastern oil supplies, his hopes are shattered against the British defenses at El Alamein. Soon the momentum of the entire war turns against the Axis, and Rommel's forces face the massive onslaught of the British and American armies as they land in North Africa.
