4.0 out of 5 stars A soldier's view. 5 Nov. 2015
By Brian Lee Knipple - Published on
Format: Paperback
An interesting and somewhat unusual book on the battle of el Alamein through the eyes of an Australian soldier, Herb Ashby. Although told in the second person, it is obviously an oral history. Apart from a few minor editorial errors, it is an enjoyable read. Anyone interested in the Australian battle around Tel el Eisa before and during the battle of Alamein should read this book.
