Afrika Korps is an illustrated record of Field-Marshal Erwin Rommel and his desert troops that fought in North Africa against British and Commonwealth forces between 1941 and 1943. Using previously rare and unpublished photographs, many of which have come from the albums of individuals who took part in the desert campaign, it presents a unique visual account of the famous Afrika-Korps' operations and equipment. Thanks to an informative caption with every photograph Afrika Korps vividly portrays how the German Army fought across the uncharted and forbidding desert wilderness of North Africa. Throughout the book it examines how Rommel and his Afrika Korps were so successful and includes an analysis of desert war tactics which Rommel himself had indoctrinated. These tactics quickly won the Afrika-Korps a string of victories between 1941 and 1942. The photographs that accompany the book are a fascinating collection that depicts life in the Afrika-Korps, as seen through the lens of the ordinary soldier.

An interesting book with unpublished documentation of great value.

WWII: German Afrika Korps surrender to Allied forces

13th May 1943

The Afrika Korps was derived and formed upon Adolf Hitler's personal choice of Erwin Rommel to its command. Following the defeat at El Alamein and the Allied invasion in Morocco and Algeria, The German Armed Forces High Command upgraded its presence in Africa, but by May the next year the last remnants of the Afrikakorps surrendered, along with all other remaining Axis forces in North Africa.
