The AFPU had been set up in the summer of 1940, under the control of the Directorate of Public Relations at the War Office.
The first twenty minutes establish the background to the desert campaign, events that had been recorded in an earlier AFPU film Wavell's 30,000 (1942), but it makes no effort to minimise the desperate plight of the British after the fall of Tobruk: `We lost 80,000 men' and `never had our backs been so close to the Suez wall'.
More significant, however, was the manner in which the AFPU portrayed El Alamein and the advance on Tripoli, as a campaign waged by a democratic people fighting a people's war.
