About the uniform
The Africa Corps uniform was basically the same as for Europe, but had open collars and a specific bracelet on the right sleeve. The olive green cotton shirt and pants faded in different shades in the desert sun. Leather was not suitable for the dry conditions, so canvas straps and boots were worn. This uniform was easy to produce and influenced the design of European theater uniforms from the middle of World War II.
