Rommel Goes On the Run at El Alamein

On this day, 4 Nov. 1942:: The German army in North Africa is in full retreat, after suffering a comprehensive defeat in Egypt at the hands of the 8th Army under General Bernard Montgomery. It is also the day in history when the US embassy in Tehran was taken by militants (1979) and Ronald Reagan beat Carter in a landslide victory (1980).
