9780142003947: War Without Hate: The Desert Campaign of 1940-43

From the climactic battle of Alamein, where Allied forces handed the Nazis their first major defeat, to the remarkable story of László Almasy, who became the basis for the romantic English patient in Michael Ondaatje’s novel, the story of this crucial WWII campaign is panoramic in scope and peopled by some of the most famous figures in the war. Drawing extensively on primary documentary sources and interviews with surviving veterans, award-winning journalists John Bierman and Colin Smith present a superb account of this extraordinary episode, remembered as a "war without hate" for the willingness by both sides to adhere to accepted notions of "fair play" and the mutual respect and camaraderie that evolved between the combatants. This riveting account is military history at its best.
