My name is Paulo Henriques. I'm Portuguese, and a World War II enthusiast. I created this site because the Afrika Korps, and their Commander Erwin Rommel, have lived in my mind since I was very young; back in the day when I would play with my Afrika Korps plastic soldiers. Now with the age of 42 and around 25 years of research of the World War II I created this site, and intend to put here everything I can find about this German force that fought in North Africa. I can't do all this without the help of many people that I meet in the Internet thanks to this website. There are there names (in no particular order and hope not forgetting no one). Some of this people spend many hours of work scanning pictures and looking for any kind of info for helping me to update this site. Most of the work here was made by them. Credits to all and my Best Regards.
