Until May of 1943, both Axis and Allied troops were present in North Africa, although Axis units were continually being squeezed into an ever-shrinking perimeter eventually centered in Tunisia. By May 13th, however, the last major Axis units had either retreated into Italy or surrendered to the Allies.

What year did the allies push Germany out of North Africa?

The Allies were never able to push the Germans out of North Africa completely, but the substantial force was wiped out. The comprised German force in North Africa had retreated and the Vichy French forces loyal to Germany were arranged when they found that Hitler was going to take full control of Italy, throwing out the Vichy French forces from the command. All Bichy French forces surrendered to Allies after that statement made by Hitler. Go figure.
