El Alamein


El Alamein is a town on the northern Egypt on the Mediterranean Sea coast, approximately 66 miles (106 kilometers) to the West of Alexandria.

The town is principally famous for two important World War II battles that were fought in the area, both in 1942. During the First Battle of El Alamein (July 1st to July 27th), Allied forces (principally British and Commonwealth) stopped the advance of Axis (German and Italian forces) into Egypt. At the Second Battle of El Alamein (October 23rd to November 4th), Allied forces went on the attack and broke the Axis line, eventually forcing the Axis troops into a retreat that only ended when they had been pushed all the way back across North Africa to Tunisia.

ESCAPE TO ANZIO: Stan Smollan s 2nd World War Saga
 
Product Description:

World War II, 1939, Private Stanley Smollan trained in South Africa. He sailed up the African East Coast to Suez. He was injured in the Battle of Sollum. On recovery, he rejoined his regiment in Tobruk, and was captured when the garrison surrendered. Stan’s own experience was being in the hold of a prison ship crossing the Mediterranean, like refugees of today, except that he was under fire from enemy craft,



He was a POW near Rome. Escape took him to the hills of Italy. After months, with underground assistance, he found his way to Anzio, as the Americans were landing.



He and his companions were arrested, as they had no form of identity. In Naples, due to chance meetings, Stan and his companions were flown back to Pretoria.



He was honourably discharged, & he returned to civilian life. Then Stan’s adjustment to being a civilian, and to a life, including a business career, travel, and sport, began.



His travels took him inter alia to Zonderwater, Durban, Tewfik, El Alamein, Mariobolis, Sollum, Cairo, Alexandria, Tobruk, Benghazi, Tarhunah, Tripoli, Naples, Capua, Fara Sabina, Apennines, Montorio Romano, Tivoli, Gerano, Anzio, Taranto, Waterkloof Air Base and Roberts Heights.
