Tripoli – Rusty

The Battle of Tripoli was an engagement on between the Deutsch-Italienische Panzerarmee commanded by Erwin Rommel of Germany and Ettore Bastico of Italy, who held the town, and the Alies commanded by Montgomery. During the Liberation of Tripoli, Germany was deeply involved on a second war front, with Russia. This meant that a depleted Germany force fought in North Africa. After a short siege, the Germans withdrew from Tripoli, and the Allies entered the town.
