Compiled directly from Allied military reports, this anthology provides a soldier's-eye view of World War II's North African campaign, which pitted inexperienced American and British forces against the seemingly unbeatable Erwin Rommel and his Afrika Korps. Illustrated with 30 black and white photographs, the book contains notes on German tactics, weapons, equipment, and communications, along with an extended report on the first battle of El Alamein. Going into uncommon detail, it includes an evaluation of small arms fire against low-flying aircraft, information on a German tank battalion's required water supply, and a report on British military strategies in Egypt.
