Nice info Raúl.

Here is the detailed information on the transport of the German tanks to North Africa.

Hi Urmel.

Thanks for that great resource.

What would be really useful would be an extra column showing the arrival date, perhaps next to the arrival port/location?

Kind regards,
David.

Let me have a look what I can do. I didn't originally include it because it's a bit boring (arrival all in Tripoli within 2-3 days of leaving Italy), but as I expanded it to later 1942 some got off in Benghazi.
The enemy had superiority in numbers, his tanks were more heavily armoured, they had larger calibre guns with nearly twice the effective range of ours, and their telescopes were superior. 5 RTR 19/11/41
