Customer Review

on 18 July 2014
This is a clear, succinct and gripping description of the Desert War. The characters of the commanders are well delineated and the problems of fighting in the desert well described. It removes any glamorous fantasy about battle. The slaughter is unremitting and the tank battles like heavyweight boxers slugging each other till they drop.

Rommel is the charismatic star and even the Allied troops admire him. However, he has to contend with Hitler who seems to entertain paranoid fantasies about the effect of his orders. The way commanders found wanting are removed is an insight into the readiness to replace those who are not getting results. Some who have got results are replaced by being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

An enthralling description of a war whose outcome, at that time was in the balance.
