The Italian Invasion of Egypt was an Italian offensive action against British, Commonwealth, and Free French forces during the Western Desert Campaign of the Second World War. Initially, the goal of the offensive was to seize the Suez Canal. To accomplish this, Italian forces from Libya would have to advance across northern Egypt to the canal. After numerous delays, the goal of the offensive was scaled back considerably. Ultimately, the goal was to advance into Egypt and attack any forces confronting the advance. While the Italians forces were able to advance about 65 miles into Egypt during the invasion, they only made contact with the British screening forces and never engaged the main British force. The screening force consisted of one reinforced brigade of the 7th Armoured Division. The main British force was at Mersa Matruh, about 80 miles from the farthest Italian penetration, and was composed of the remainder of the 7th Armoured Division and the 4th Indian Infantry Division.
