Winston Churchill Message On the Eve of the Libyan Offensive of 18 November 1941 I have it in command from the King to express to all ranks of the Army and the British Royal Air Force (RAF) in the Western Desert, and to the Mediterranean Fleet, his Majesty's confidence that they will do their duty with exemplary devotion in the supremely important battle which lies before them. For the first time British and Empire troops will meet the Africa Korps with an ample equipment in modern weapons. The battle itself will affect the whole course of the war. Now is the time to strike the hardest blow yet struck for final victory, home and freedom. The Desert Army may add one page to history which will rank with Blenheim and with Waterloo. The eyes of all nations are upon you. All our hearts are with you. May God uphold the right.
