An outstanding contribution to the literature of World War II, this comprehensive account of the Desert Campaign of 1940-43 is rich both in commentary and documentary evidence. Distinguished historian Correlli Barnett has created a beautifully written epic that captures at every level the intensity and human drama of battle. There are interviews with almost every senior officer who participated, information from private papers, and intimate portraits of five of the most influential commanders who led the allied forces against both the Italian and German armies.
