During World War II, the name of the major battle that took place in western Egypt in North Africa, and which resulted in a defeat of the Germans by British (and other Allied) forces, was the Battle of El Alamein. Occurring in late October to early November of 1942, this battle (often called the 'Second Battle of El Alamein') resulted in a decisive victory for the Allies, who soon followed it up with a triumphant advance westwards across North Africa.
