Topic: Hitler: Why move into Africa


This has been a question of mine for a long time. Why did Hitler invade Africa? What was the goal?

because germany was allied with italy...
and the italians wanted to invade into africa, but had big problems, and so they called germany to help them...

Weren't the Nazis and Italians trying to conquer the whole of the Mediterranean? SO then they would have to take Africa.

haha thats funny redneck. Just as pollux said that is the main reason Hitler 'invaded' Africa. He only sent men, Rommel, there because Italy needed help. Mussolini believed that the old roman empire should be put back together, just as Hitler thought all German speaking nations should be 'united' once again. Hitler truly never invaded Africa because he only sent Rommel with his men to help Italy conquer it, then left them there cause he knew Mussolini could not hold it without his help. Hitler did want world domination but Africa was last on his list because it would be very simple for him to conquer.
