In February 1941, the German High Command decided to dispatch an expeditionary force to north Africa in support of the Italian forces which were in a difficult situation against the British. This contingent included elements that a few months later were to form the 5th Light Division, and in 1942, the 21st. Panzer-Division.
As the keystone of the Deutsches Afrika Korps, this division was involved in the hardest battles in that theater of operations until it was finally driven out of the continent of Africa along with the rest of the Axis forces in May 1943.
