The Deutsches Afrikakorps (German for "German Africa Corps"), better known simply as the Afrika Korps, was a German expeditionary force in Libya and Tunisia during World War II. The reputation of the Afrika Korps is synonymous with that of its first commander Erwin Rommel as an impeccable and efficient fighting machine. Their main opponents were the equivalent Allied force, the Desert Rats, led by Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery.

Overview Edit

The Afrika Korps are featured in Call of Duty: Finest Hour, Call of Duty 2, and Call of Duty 2: Big Red One. The most notable appearance of the Afrika Korps is in the British campaign of Call of Duty: Finest Hour and Call of Duty 2, where the player engages in combat with Afrika Korps troops. The Afrika Korps are featured prominently in the Call of Duty 2: Big Red One levels "The Desert Fox" and "Counterattack".

Trivia Edit

  • The Afrika Korps have been only been mentioned, by name, in multiple conversations in Call of Duty 2: Big Red One between Private Victor "Vic" Denley and Sergeant Glenn "Hawk" Hawkins because they hammered the Allied forces in the Battle of Kasserine.
