Operation Lightfoot was the attempt to clear a passage across a huge minefield in the desert known as the ‘Devil’s Garden’. It was a hugely ambitious plan, involving clearing a path several miles long in a single night. Whilst it was ultimately unsuccessful, any relief for the Germans was short-lived.

The second phase of Montgomery’s plan was called Operation Supercharge, and it began on 2nd November 1942.  This involved a bait-and-switch. Montgomery first drove his attack northwards, before suddenly turning to the west to punch through the German-Italian line.

Later that day, the Allies intercepted a message from Rommel to Germany, which declared that his army faced annihilation.  He was told to ‘stand and die’ by his leaders, but by the time he received this message, the Panzers had already begun to retreat. The battle for North Africa was effectively over, with a victory for the Allies. From then on, Montgomery’s forces were able to keep pushing the Germans back through Libya and into Tunisia.

Churchill summed it up very well in one of his famous quotes – “Up to Alamein, we survived. After Alamein, we conquered.”


Don’t just survive, commanders! Start conquering!
