History repeats itself

Amazing how the daily record of what was going on in the Libyan campaign of the Second World War precisely seventy years ago mirrors current events. Around familiar names like Algedabia, Mersa Brega, and Benghazi, the battle front ebbs back and forth over hundreds of miles as one side or the other loses a skirmish, overruns a defensive position, or simply runs low on fuel.  Details the WW2 Today site, which continues to drive home how vast and farflung that war really was.
