old comments[edit]

Wikipedia's January 22 page says Tobruk was captured by British troops on that day. This page in Wikipedia says British and Australian troops, on January 12.

10/29/05: Added secondary knowledge derived from Order of Battle research and my experience with the game noted in the article. Note that although my knowledge comes in part from a game that this game is meticulously researched and accurate both from a military and geographic perspective.

Strategic importance in World War II[edit]

I've made some corrections and changes to this section. Firstly, Italy invaded Egypt in September 1940, not in November. Secondly, Italy didn't invade Greece until October - it was Albania it had attacked earlier. I made a change to the section on the Allies' counter-attack to clarify that they went well beyond Tobruk - the Italians retreated all the way to El Agheila. Similarly, I clarified the extent of Rommel's advance: he, in turn, went beyond Tobruk, and got as far as Sollum. Finally, the Italian "invasion" of France only got as far as Menton and they only occupied some border areas, so I changed the wording from "occupied the south of France" to "occupied part of the south of France".
