Description: 

During the Western Desert Campaign in World War II (1940-1943), Tobruk was held for 241 days by Allied forces - mostly Australian; there were no American troops engaged. There was fighting in many parts of "the African desert" during the War, and Japanese-American troops fighting in Europe accumulated an impressive combat record, but no Japanese-American troops were involved in fighting in Africa (194).
