Tobruk changed hands many times in WW2. It is notable that both at Tobruk & Singapore many POWs were Australian. The soldiery of the Anzacs in WW2 was as before in WW1, of the highest order, their presence in the North Africa campaign vitally important. Thereafter they went to the pacific theatre to defend against Japan.

Tobruk is seaport in Libya that was fought over between the Allies (Britain & Commonwealth-including Australian troops) and the Axis (Germany & Italy) during the Second World War. The Italians, later supported by the Germans, attempted to seize Egypt, using forces in its colony of Libya. The Italians were repulsed by British Commonwealth forces, and forced back into Libya. The British seized Tobruk, held out in Tobruk in one enemy (Gen. Rommel) offensive, then later lost Tobruk during the second enemy (Gen. Rommel) offensive. By late 1942, the Axis were in retreat from Libya, and the British would retake Tobruk again.
