History Audio Programs-In the early days of April 1941, the 14,000 Australian forces garrisoned in the Libyan town of Tobruk were told to expect reinforcements and supplies within eight weeks. Eight months later these heroic, gallant, determined Rats of Tobruk were rescued by the British Navy having held the fort against the might of Rommels never-before-defeated Afrika Corps.pLike Gallipoli and Kokoda, the siege of Tobruk is an iconic battle in Australias military history. Under ceaseless attack from Rommels men, the Australian defense held strong. In iTobruki, Peter FitzSimons relates the personal histories and stories not only of the men who defended the garrison against the German onslaught but of the Desert Fox, Erwin Rommel, and the powers back in both Berlin and Britain.
