History lesson: The German Africa Corps (Deutsches Afrikakorps) was the German expeditionary force in Africa during the North African Campaign of World War II. Strictly speaking, the term refers to the original formation, Deutsches Afrikakorps (DAK), which became incorporated into the Axis command of the German and Italian forces in North Africa. However, it was often used by the news media and Allied soldiers as a name for all German units in North Africa. The reputation of the Afrika Korps is tied with that of its first commander, Erwin Rommel.
The principal units of the Afrika Korps were the 15th Panzer Division and the 21st Panzer Division.
