There are two shortcomings of the book. First, he relies too heavily on Niall Barr's "Pendulum of War: The Three Battles of El Alamein". It seemed that virtually every interesting quote or battlefield account was from this book, which I'm now anxious to read. Second, the paragraphs are monsterous, often running more than a page. This may sound like a nitpick but it effected the book's readibility. With that said, these shortcomings were minor.
I enjoyed the book and would recommend it for those that are interested in better understanding the Second Battle of El Alamein.
