SIEGE OF GIARABUB




March 21st, 1941
Siege of Giarabub

Siege of Giarabub


Italy Italy against Australia Australia


The Libyan oasis of Giarabub lies in the heart of a harsh, drab wilderness 300km southeast of Tobruk. It was Mussolini's loneliest and farthest outpost in Libya, a stronghold in the forsaken land of sun and sand. Its presence, with its garrison of Italian troops, was a constant threat to the British-held oasis of Siwa a few miles away across the Egyptian frontier. Since June 1940, the Australian 6th Cavalry Regiment had kept under siege the Senussi oasis and its outposts but the garrison commander refused to surrender. On March 21st 1941, a battalion of the Australian 18th Brigade advanced in a blinding sandstorm.
