North African Harbor During the German Drive to Egypt

North African harbor (could be Benghazi or Tripoli) during the German drive to Egypt, 1941. The ship with the liner in the background might be the Italian auxiliary cruiser "Citta Tu Tunisi". It always sailed with at least one of his three sister ships (Viktoria, Esperia or Marco Polo) and distinguishable by his one funnel (not two funnel like three other). The picture was taken by General Erwin Rommel, commander of Afrikakorps
