Desert Victory (1943)

Academy Awards, USA 1944

Best Documentary, Features

Twentieth Century-Fox Film
Directed by Roy Boulting and David MacDonald
My rating: 2 stars out of 4

British documentary on the battle between the Allies lead by Montgomery and the Allies lead by Rommel in northern Egypt during WWII. The British perspective, and role in the victory, is emphasized while contributions from other Allies is minimized. Some footage has now been proved to be staged. Still, it does provide a basic overview of this important battle, including some helpful maps and strategies employed.
