Description: Operation Brushwood was a part of Operation Torch, Allied landings in Africa during World War II.
Taking place on 8 November 1942 they were intended to capture the port of Lyautey as part of a larger operation to capture Casablanca in Morocco.
The landing troops were uncertain of their position, and the second wave was delayed. This gave the defenders time to organise resistance, and the remaining landings were conducted under artillery bombardment. With the assistance of air support from the carriers the troops pushed ahead and the objectives were captured.
