Fort Capuzzo was one of three large Forts to be built during the Second Italo-Senussi War (1923–1931), as part of a barrier on the Libya-Egypt and Libya-Sudan borders.
Living quarters had been built around the inside edges and provided the base for border guards and Italian army armoured car patrols. A track ran south from the fort, just west of the frontier wire and the border, to Sidi Omar and its sister Fort Maddalena
During WWII the fort changed hands 7 times in bitter battles over the three year period. What remains that were left have since disappeared into obscurity.
Perfect for your Italian army, Afrika Korps, 8th Army or perhaps even your Star Wars Legion!
