The Afrika Korps (Deutsches Afrikakorps, DAK) was the German expeditionary sent to the North African Campaign of World War II. The force fought in Africa from March 1941 until its surrender in May 1943. While the term referred to the original formation, the Deutsches Afrikakorps (DAK), it was often used by the Allies as a generic name for all German units in North Africa. The reputation of the Afrika Korps is closely associated with that of its first commander, Erwin Rommel.
