9780141391281: North African Victory: The Eighth Army from Alam Halfa to Tunis 1942-1943 (Penguin Classic Military History)

Published in hardback as "The Eighth Army's Greatest Victories", this informed and accessible account of victory in the desert examines the considerable problems faced and overcome by the commanders and men of the eighth army. Whereas the early successes of the axis powers in North Africa have been loudly praised, the far more conclusive victories of the allies from August 1942 to May 1943 have received little credit. Additional information is offerered on the highly significant battle of Alam Halfa, the reasons for the escape of the bulk of Rommel's defeated forces after El Alamein,the contribution of ultra, and the co-operation of the eighth army and its all too often ignored partner, the desert air force.
