Answer
The second battle of El Alamein was a defeat for Rommel and was the beginning of a general retreat of the Axis in North Africa, which eventually ended up in Tunisia. There were of course many battles after El Alamein, notably the sound thrashing that Rommel's panzers gave green U.S. troops at Kasserine Pass in 1943. But any Axis victories were minor tactical ones that were short-lived. Victory in North Africa allowed the Allies an excellent jumping off point for the invasion of Sicily and later the Italian mainland. Even though the Italian campaign was often considered to be a secondary theater of war, hundreds of thousand of troops fought there and many German divisions were forced to fight there instead of being available to fight in the USSR or France. Ever since the first presence of German troops in Africa in 1941 they had a two front war, after the invasion of France it was a three front war along with Italy and the USSR. It proved to be impossible to devote so many resources to so many places at once and so they inevitably lost the war. Sorry for the long winded answer.
