In his latest book Kelvin Crombie tells the story of El Alamein and how this victory prevented Nazi-Muslim plans for destroying the Jewish communities of the Middle East from being fulfilled.

Captain Charles Upham VC & Bar won the bar to his VC through his courage and bravery during this battle.

The Jewish leadership of Eretz Israel presented to General Montgomery after the victory at El Alamein, a bible. Accompanying this beautifully ornate Bible were these words:

"Field Marshall Viscount Montgomery, the gallant leader of the victorious British forces by whose hand God has placed salvation in Zion in the days of El Alamein."

Most of those gallant soldiers at El Alamein and other battles which fought the Axis (German and Italian) forces in the region were Gentiles (non-Jews) – whose very presence hindered the penetration of the Holocaust into the Middle East.

Hear Kelvin talk about this historic battle and the Holocaust that was averted by this victory.
