Using authentic footage, including seized German film, this Oscar-winning British documentary follows the longest chase in military history: the British Eighth Army's pursuit of Rommel's Afrika Korps from El Alamein to Tripoli. Directed by Col. David MacDonald of the Army Photographic Unit, Desert Victory provided eager wartime English audiences with a front-row view of the turning point in the World War II African campaign.
