        North Africa | Ken Burns: The War

        View images taken in North Africa during World War II. World War II (1939-1945) was the most destructive, and most costly, war in human history. It involved dozens of countries, spanned continents, and resulted in the loss of 50 million lives. In North Africa, the Axis powers of Italy and Germany fought Allied powers for three years, between 1940-1943, before the Allied forces reached victory.
