The Desert War

Covering the North Africa campaign in 1940, this acclaimed account of the tussle between Montgomery's Eight Army and Rommel's Afrika Corps is a remarkable account of one of the most complicated and epic stand-offs in the history of World War II. Beautifully documented and historically relevant, Moorehead's celebrated insight that tank battles in the desert reflected battles at sea--the lumbering tanks like ships lost in a vast ocean of sand--and the breadth and penetration of his vision that encompasses the whole panorama of war, illustrate why this account is considered to be the definitive reference of the African campaigns. From describing the soldier stubbing out his cigarette before going into action to the expression on a tank commander's face as he is hit, this poetically scribed documentation is a thorough and fascinating journey into one of history's most pivotal war campaigns.
