Compressed file

   

    These days humanity marks the 80th anniversary of the beginning of World War II that was the Nazi Germany’s invasion of Poland. As to “African history” of the war it is often reduced to the battles in the Libyan desert during 1940-1943 and to the landing of the US and UK troops in North-West Africa in November 1942. However, Africa’s role in the war was much more significant and multifaceted.
