By Friday, Nov. 13, 1942, this Axis fortress was for the second time in our hands, South Africans being the first to enter. Taken during Gen. Wavell's advance in Jan. 1941 Tobruk withstood eight months' siege from April to December of that year, when it was relieved by our second Libyan offensive. On June 21 this year it was retaken by the Germans, but following Gen. Montgomery's decisive victory in the Battle of Egypt, the Nazis made no attempt to hold it. Photo, British Official.
