A truly outstanding contribution to the literature. The author has looked in detail at the morale of British (including Australian, New Zealand and South African) forces during the North African campaign. He has, I believe, taken the study of this campaign a great step forward, and has given a new dimension to understanding of how the army fought at the very basic level, the people and how their morale and motivation affected higher command decisions. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
I would highly recommend this book; it gives a highly insightful view of the role of morale in the Eighth Army in 1942. I would go so far as to state one cannot fully understand the North African campaign without reading this book.
