Wavell, Commander-in-Chief, Middle East; despatch on operations in East Africa November 1940 to July 1941, by General Sir Archibald P. Wavell, Commander-in-Chief, Middle East; despatch on operations in East Africa July 1941 to January 1943, by Lieutenant-General Sir William Platt, General Officer Commanding-in-Chief, East Africa Command; and the Capture of Diego Suarez during Operation Ironclad by Rear-Admiral Syfret.

This unique collection of original documents will prove to be an invaluable resource for historians, students and all those interested in what was one of the most significant periods in British military history.

'The reports provide a balanced view of how the senior Allied commanders saw the campaigns and are all the more fascinating because they cover one of the most under-reported theatres of WWII. The text is supported by illustration with a very good photo plate section that contains rare photographs. '
