Winston Churchill, the British Prime Minister at the time, said of this victory: Now this is not the end; it is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning. After the war, he wrote: Before Alamein we never had a victory. After Alamein, we never had a defeat.The naval Battle of Cape Bon took place on December 13, 1941 during the Second World War, between two Italian light cruisers and an Allied destroyer flotilla off Cape Bon, Tunisia. The loss of the two cruisers and their valuable fuel cargoes was a serious defeat for the Regia Marina.KEYWORDS: AFRICAN AFRICA VICTORY BRITISH FORCES EL ALAMEIN CAPE BON SECOND WORLD WAR TWO WWII WW2 MILITARY HISTORY
