About the Uniform
The Africa Corps uniform was basically the same as the one for Europe, but featured open collars and a specific armband on the right sleeve. The Olive Green cotton shirt and trousers faded into various shades in the desert sun. Leather was not suited for the dry conditions, so canvas belts and boots were worn. This uniform was easy to produce and influenced the design of European Theater uniforms from mid-WWII onwards.
