Operation Torch

Senior Research Curator Emma Mawdsley looks at the co-operation between US and British troops during Operation Torch.


In 1942, Britain and the United States launched a combined amphibious landing in North Africa, code-named ‘Torch’. Prime Minister Winston Churchill suggested that British soldiers should wear US Army uniforms during the invasion as he believed that the Vichy French would be more welcoming to US than British soldiers.

Emma Mawdsley examines photographs in the National Army Museum’s collections illustrating the co-operation between the British and American forces during this major operation of the Second World War.
