    In the first Battle of El Alamein beginning on July 1st, 1942, German General Erwin Rommel tried in vain to attack the Allied defensive positions with his Afrika Corps (and Italian allies), yielding tremendous losses to his army forces as a result. The actions in this first campaign forced an end to fighting by July 22nd. The Allied defensive perimeter near El Alamein held and that was that.

    With forces refreshed, Rommel enacted a first-strike mentality and attacked the Allied lines near El Alamein in an effort to take some strategic high ground behind the defensive perimeter. The assault was again repelled and Rommel was forced into a defensive position at Bab el Qattara, the starting point of his offensive. Montgomery now took the time to build up an impressive army made up of thousands of artillery cannons, men and tanks.
    On October 23rd, Operation Lightfoot was put into effect by Montgomery as 800+ artillery guns opened up on the Axis positions. A two-pronged attack was activated, with a northern and southern force. The southern force was in actuality a diversionary force meant to commit Axis resources to a second front. After two days, progress for the Allies was made but at a high cost, with mixed results. Southern Allied forces were now committed to the north to help break the slow progress through Operation Supercharge, which itself yielded little result.

    The terms extermination camp (Vernichtungslager) and death camp (Todeslager) are interchangeable usages, each referring to camps whose primary function was genocide, not for punishing crime or containing political prisoners, but for the systematic killing of the prisoners delivered there.
    The system that Nazi Germany created grew to include about 100 camps divided into two types: concentration camps for slave labor in nearby factories and death camps for the systematic extermination of "undesirables" including Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, the mentally retarded and others.
