HEIA SAFARI - THE AFRIKAKORPS

by Nicholas Trudgian

During a concerted effort to prevent the advance of British and American forces in North Africa, elements of the 10th Panzer Division Army Group 'Afrika' counter-attack through a rock-strewn, sun-parched valley in northen Tunisia in spring 1943. Overhead, air support is provided by the Ju87Ds of St.G3 and the formidable Fw190A fighters of II./JG2. , units which had been drafted in from Europe as specialists in ground attack and dogfighting.

 The Panzer III and IV tanks portrayed in this picture, though small compared with later German tanks, were the workhorses of the German Panzer Division and in Africa played a vital role in the cut-and-thrust armoured battles of 1941 and 1942. The 75mm long-barrelled Panzer IV, called the 'Special' by the Allies, was particularly feared as it was capable of destroying any Allied tank at range.

Although ultimately defeated, the exploits of The Afrika Korp in the desert, especially under the command of Field Marshal Rommel, earned widespread respect and taught valuable lessons to the Allies for subsequent combat in mainland Europe.

Nicholas Trudgians wonderfully detailed and exacting painting has captured the dust and heat which the men and machines of both The Afrka Korp and Allied forces had to contend with in the barren and rocky battlefieds of North Africa.
