Tobruk

A lot has been written about these battles but little did I know at the time but I had relatives from both my adopted and birth families taking part.

Tobruk

In June 1942, General Rommel (soon to be made Field Marshall) had cut off the British at Tobruk and, following an attack on 20th June 1942, a general order was given to surrender and 33,000 allied troops were taken POW.   Those captured were taken by ship to either Italian or Greek POW camps.
