Episode Summary

Sand and Sea War - War in the Mediterranean 1941 - 1944
When in June 1940 Mussolini finally joined Hitler in war against Britain and France, he was looking for quick easy victories and an end to British domination of the Mediterranean. In reality, the Axis was drawn into struggle in the Balkans and Western Desert which disrupted its long term strategy despite some early stunning victories.This programme shows how Britain's desperate struggle to keep open her lifeline to the East developed into direct assault against "the soft underbelly of the Axis".* Desert Rats versus the Afrika Korps* The Mediterranean Convoys* Breakthrough at El Alamein* The Torch Landings* The Race to Romemoreless
