Tobruk, Scene of Heroic WW II Battles, Becomes Popular ANZAC Pilgrimage.

LOS ANGELES, Calif., Feb. 2 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Libya Expeditions,

Libya's leading tour operator and travel adventure specialist, celebrates the storied tale
of courage, honor, and comradeship during the Siege of Tobruk with its historic 5 day
ANZAC Libya World War II Remembrance Tour.

"Every April, ANZAC Day is commemorated in Australia and New Zealand, and the
legend of the 'Rats of Tobruk' and their valor has made Tobruk extremely popular with
Australian and New Zealand tourists," said Ryad Sunusi, Libya Expeditions Founder
and CEO. "In Tobruk, the past comes alive with WW II memorials, memorabilia, and
relics; where the deeds and hardships of those that fought and died thousands of miles
from homes and loved ones are forever enshrined."

The ANZACS, an acronym for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, were renowned for their tenacious fighting spirit and
courage during the World Wars, often overcoming tremendous odds to win key victories. Their legend was further
immortalized in Libya, where the besieged ANZACS - dubbed the "Rats of Tobruk" by the impressed Germans - achieved
legendary status for their selfless heroism and ferocious resistance against Rommel's forces during the Western Desert

"Libya World War Two Remembrance Tour" is a step back into time and the historic see-saw battles between Allied and Axis
forces in North Africa. Tobruk and its extensive WW II memorials and cemeteries are visited, including the Commonwealth
War cemetery, Knightsbridge Acroma, and Bar Hakim. Interesting side excursions include Rommel's massive underground
bunker, the Fig Tree Hospital, the "Lady Be Good," and the German Memorial.

April is the most popular month for the ANZAC Tobruk tour, coinciding with ANZAC Day and the Siege of Tobruk, on April 25th
and April 10th respectively.
