Adolf Hitler’s war in Africa arose from the urgent need to reinforce the Italian dictator, Benito Mussolini, whose 1940 invasion of Egypt had been soundly beaten. Of secondary importance to his ideological dream of conquering the Soviet Union, Germany’s Führer rushed a small mechanised force into the unfamiliar North African theatre to stave off defeat and avert any political fallout.

This fresh account begins with the arrival of the largely unprepared German formations, soon to be stricken by disease and heavily reliant upon captured materiel, as they fought a bloody series of see-sawing battles across the Western Desert.

David Mitchelhill-Green has gathered a wealth of personal narratives from both sides as he follows the brash exploits of General Erwin Rommel, intent on retaking Libya; the Nile firmly in his sights. Against this backdrop is the brutal human experience of war itself.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

A well written recounting of the desert war between the British forces and the Axis allies between 1942-42. The first hand accounts and descriptions of the battles and political intrigue were highly informative. The battle scenes were gripping and held your attention. A must read for the history enthusiast.

NetGalley, Ron Baumer

It was very interesting to have access to perspectives from both sides of this conflict. The insights into Rommel’s strategy were clearly founded in string research and the writing style will appeal to readers beyond history buffs.
