9780141004679: Alamein: War without Hate

'Excellent ...a remarkable achievement and ought to be recognised as one of the most successful histories of the Western Desert and North African fighting yet to have appeared' John Keegan, Daily Telegraph For the British, the battle fought at El Alamein in October 1942 became the turning point of the Second World War. In this study of the desert war, John Bierman and Colin Smith show why it is remembered by its survivors as a 'war without hate'. Through extensive research the authors provide a compellingly fresh perspective on the see-saw campaign in which the two sides chased each other back and forth across the unforgiving North African landscape.

About the Author:

John Bierman and Colin Smith are both award winning journalists writing for most major newspapers. They have separately published a number of previous books, this being their second collaboration. Their first, FIRE IN THE NIGHT, was a widely praised biography of the maverick British commander, Orde Wingate. Colin Smith is the author of Singapore Burning, published by Penguin, and the co-author of Warsaw Boy (with Andrew Borowiec).
