As 1940 drew to a close the conflict was spreading. Disasters were continuing to unfold around the Italian war effort. The invasion of Greece had turned to catastrophe as the Italians were driven back into the hills of Albania. In North Africa the British Army drove the Italians deeper into retreat. These failures had begun to draw Germany further into the south to rescue its Axis comrade. At the same time another front had opened up in North Africa; Erwin Rommel and his North Afrika Korps stepped up to take their place in history.
