Why Germans invaded Africa?
To help the Italians who were suffering losses. After a while, the objective was to push through Egypt into the Middle East (for the oil).
The Germans were not the axis power that invaded North Africa in WW II, although they did enter the conflict there, ostensibly in support of their Axis partner Italy. Italy invaded British Somaliland in August 1940 and Egypt in September 1040. In December 1940, British Commonwealth forces began counter-offensives against Italian forces in Egypt and Italian East Africa. Hitler sent the first German forces to Libya in North Africa to support the Italians in February…
There was a lot of pressure from the Russians to open another front and divert some of the German attention from winning on the Eastern Front. The Allies re-captured North Africa and used it as a jumping off point for invading Italy. Correct. The Americans wanted to join the fight against the Germans and North Africa was the only place where the British were currently fighting the Germans.
the germans invaded North Africa becuase they badly needed fuel for theri armoured divisions after the assualt on france and the lower countries in europe. North africa was full of oil and was an appropriet area to atttack becuase it was lightly defended by the british until reinforcement by other british forces.
It was not the Germans who invaded the western part of the Roman Empire. Germany did not exist back then. It was Germanic tribes which were part of the ancestors of today's Germans. They were the Vadals, Sueves, Alemanni and Burgundians. The Angles, Saxons, Jutes and Frisians migrated to Britannia in waves and took it over.
In europe: Poland, France, Luxemburg, Belgium, Holland, Finnland, Norway, Denmark, Russia, and some islands in Britain. In Africa: Morroco( I dont think they invaded but they were down there a couple of times to talk with the Vichy French people) Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Greece. The Italians did fight with the Germans, In North Africa, and in the retreat in Italy with the Herman Goring division.
