Operation Torch - the invasion of North Africa

The landings in North Africa in November 1942 were the first step taken jointly by US and British Forces to end the war in North Africa and to pave the way for subsequent invasions on the mainland of Europe. This is the account of that operation. It includes details of the forces involved, the plan for the operation, the assault, the occupation of Algiers and the capture of Oran, as well as operations in French Morocco and the capture of Port Lyautey, Safi and Fedala. A well written and very good account of this operation.
