XXX Corps (30 Corps), was a British Army Corps during the Second World War. It played a major role in the Western Desert Campaign, where it was initially formed for the British armoured units in North Africa in preparation for Operation Crusader, the last British attempt to relieve the siege of Tobruk . It took severe casualties, mainly because of obsolete British tank tactics, but finally forced Rommel's Afrika Korps to withdraw to El Agheila in Central Libya. In 1942, Rommel had counter-attacked and driven the British back to Gazala, a few kilometers west of Tobruk.
