    The North African Campaign was a series of battles during World War II that occurred in Africa between the Allies and the Axis powers.  However, colonial power affected many nations in Africa during World War II.  When the war ended, colonial ties broke, in many cases due to the "humanization" of Europeans.1

    This web site is dedicated to an exploration of the peoples and cultures affected in Africa by World War II and how the war affected these peoples.  Here you will find studies of the nations involved, key events, and some brief information on Africans abroad.  Use the above links to navigate this site.  All sources are noted by a little superscript number that looks like a footnote or an endnote.  Each of these numbers is a link to the correct part of the Sources page.
