El Alamein Day Trip

Located on the Mediterranean coast, just 4 hours north of Cairo, lies El Alamein, where two extended battles were fought during World War II. The first began on the 1st July 1942 and lasted for 27 days, it ended as a stalemate. After 3 months of holding the enemy back, the Allies launched a second attack which lasted for 13 days. This saw the Allied forces push back the Axis powers for ultimate defeat in Tunisia. Some 13,000 Allied soldiers were killed and 70,000 were wounded in the battle.

At El Alamein, there is a well-tended Commonwealth war cemetery which is home to the graves and memorials of many British, Australian and New Zealand soldiers. There is also the informative El Alamein museum. It acts as a memorial for the battle and houses lots of original war vehicles, weapons, uniforms and records. It covers the whole of the story of World War II in North Africa from all sides and stands on the site where the actual battle took place.
