Publisher Comments:

Portrait of this famous World War II unit at the height of its success Completely illustrated with photos, maps, and diagrams--in color where available

In the sands of the Western Desert in 1941-42, Erwin Rommel made history as the Desert Fox, waging a brilliant and bold campaign against the British. Beginning at El Agheila in March 1941, the Afrika Korps--frequently outnumbered--drove the British steadily east across Libya and into Egypt. The German offensive eventually ground to a halt in a series of battles at El Alamein. In impressive detail, George Bradford depicts what it was like to serve and fight in the Afrika Korps, from its tanks and equipment to its battles and daily life.

Book News Annotation:

Author Bradford, for whom no background information is given, has written a tribute to the men on both sides who fought in the North African Campaign in World War II, and particularly to Erwin Rommel and his Afrika Korps. The book follows the almost two years of tank battles in the Western Desert, and also compares the tanks and support equipment of the German and British military. The book also includes tables of organization and equipment and a bibliography. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
