Summary
A compelling study of the fierce Second World War campaign illustrates why the strategy of the Axis powers failed in the struggle for the North African coast during World War II and profiles the important roles of such military leaders as Rommel and Montgomery. Reprint.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The struggle for the North African coast of the Mediterranean was unlike any other campaign of World War II. Because it was fought like a tournament in an empty arena, with no one but the contestants getting hurt and with few of the distractions of politics or large civilian populations, the desert was a true test of generalship. Men including Germany's General Rommel and Britain's General Montgomery dominated the battle with a brilliance that established their reputations on the world stage.
