THEME PICS: Turning point of the war.

November 1942 marked the turning point of Axis fortunes in World War II. In Africa, the Allied forces rout the Germans at the Second battle of El Alamein. Russian forced launch Operation Uranus, encircling Stalingrad and trapped an entire German army in the city. The Japanese thrust into the South Pacific is checked at Guadalcanal, where they lose several precious battleships and carriers.

For this month, display any models that represent this period in history. Sherman tanks, American battleships, and even merchant forces use to ferry troops during Operation Torch or really any of the other major theaters of the war.
