Stop At: El Alamein War Cemetery, Markaz Al Alamein Matrouh, El Alamein 51718 Egypt
This pivotal location in World War II is west of Alexandria in the desert along the Mediterranean coast near Marsa Matruh. The events here actually took place in two stages. An initial conflict in July 1942 resulted in a stalemate that halted the German advance. Three months later the strengthened Allied force under a new commander, General Montgomery, fought the German forces for 13 days before finally forcing them to retreat. The end of this battle on October 20th, 1942 is being celebrated this year.
Today the battleground is memorialized by a museum containing equipment from the battles and explanation of what took place, as well as several cemeteries where the fallen soldiers who fought on both sides of the battle are buried. Taking the short trip out of Alexandria to experience the solemn beauty of these cemeteries and learn about the history of World War II in North Africa is a memorable trip at any time, but this October is will be even more special.
Young men from Germany, Italy, Australia, Great Britain, France, New Zealand, India, South Africa, and Greece all fought and died on these grounds.
