The material sat for decades, its unique view of important encounters unseen. Shot from aircraft high above the conflicts, it captures the intense action as Allied forces battled their enemies. Enriched with cutting-edge CGI graphics which create detailed contour maps of the battleground, THE LOST EVIDENCE sheds new light on some of WWII’s most important engagements.
In the fall of 1942, in the remote North African desert, British and Allied troops face the feared German Afrika Korps and their Italian Allies. The British were pushed back nearly 1000 miles from Libya, to a little known Egyptian railway stop called El Alamein. Over the following nine days, this battle became a personal duel between General Bernard Montgomery and General Erwin Rommel. Only by brazenly pulling off one of the greatest deceptions of the war, the British fooled the Germans into making a catastrophic mistake.
Winston Churchill called this turning-point battle “not the beginning of the end, but, perhaps, the end of the beginning.” Using rare aerial photographs from both Allied and Axis reconnaissance, THE LOST EVIDENCE provides the best overview ever of the Second Battle of El Alamein.
