For many years, Tunisia was under the colonial control of France, but the Germans invaded and conquered the country early on in World War II. Tunisia became a grand, almost epic battle ground between US and British forces and the German North African army under the command of General Rommel, “the Desert Fox”.

By March of 1943, Allied forces had driven the Germans out of Tunisia, and it became the launching pad for an invasion of Axis Italy, beginning with Sicily.

After the war, the French regained control over Tunisia. This led to an independence movement, which ultimately succeeded on 25 July, 1956. A dictatorship reigned over Tunisia after independence for over 30 years, but today, there is democratic rule.
