Desert War in North Africa by Stephen W. Sears
Genre(s): History, Military, World War II
The struggle for the North African coast of the Mediterranean was unlike any other campaign of World War II. Because it was fought like a tournament in an empty arena, with no one but the contestants getting hurt and with few of the distractions of politics or large civilian populations, the desert was a true test of generalship. Men including Germany’s General Rommel and Britain’s General Montgomery dominated the battle with a brilliance that established their reputations on the world stage.
