Book Description

29 Aug 2005
Of all the units that marched with the Desert Army, none was more famous than the 7th Aroured Division, the most renowned British fighting force of World War II: 'The Desert Rats'. This Division fought in all the great battles of the Desert War - at Sidi Rezegh against the full might of Rommel's Afrika Korps; at Alamein, Tripoll and Tunis. And when the Axis was pushed out of Africa they moved on to Italy, France, Belgium and finally, triumphantly, to Berlin itself, the heart of the Nazi empire. This book tells the story of the Desert Rats largely in the words of the soldiers themselves. From commanding general to tank gunner, artillery man and most junior squaddie, these men bring history to life in all its horror and glory.

5.0 out of 5 stars The desert campaign 10 Jun 2008
By Thomas Truthsayer - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is great! I liked it so much, I went out and bought a "Honey" tank and drive it around the city, wearing a British tank berret and speaking with an accent! (smile) Seriously...this book is a good read if you are interested in WWII Desert campaigns. Wished there was more information map and tactic wise, but that is probably a different subject. "Buy, it today, Old Boy!"
