There are plenty of books about World War II and the North African campaign, but this one has a nice personal feel to it. Compiled by Roger Fogg, son of one of the soldiers featured, it follows a couple of Desert Rats from their initial training, through North Africa and Italy to the ultimate 1945 destination (for the Allies) of Berlin. It's not done in any great detail, but the snippets of personal stories are accompanied by a wealth of pictures, most of them snapshots taken by Desert Rats of each other in the desert and through Europe. Also things like a list of Do's and Don't's for newly arrived soldiers dealing with Tunisians.
The 'big picture' of warfare is all very well in its own right, but life in the ranks is equally fascinating, and this informal scrapbook (as the title suggests) gives a more personal story.
