Why did Germany want to invade Africa anyway?

Post by Robert Jackson » 24 May 2006 19:18

Can someone tell me why Hitler wanted to invade Africa? I can't see the point as there is nothing but desert and there were no US or British army in Africa to fight?

Hitler was a clever man so he must have had a good reason but I can't think what :?

Any help would be great
