Synopsis: The soldiers fighting in the deserts of North Africa did not fight on a black & white canvas: the war was in color! This book, for the first time ever in print, presents a pictorial chronology of the campaign in Africa and the Deutsches Afrikakorps (DAK)--the German Afrikakorps--the way the soldiers themselves lived it: in color. It offers more than 150 photographs derived from what at that time, was revolutionary original color slide film. These pictures portray the leaders, men and equipment of the Afrikakorps from the arrival of its first units in Tripoli, Lybia through its astounding advance across the Libyan desert to Egypt and its eventual withdrawal back to Tunisia after the bitter, lost struggle with the British at El Alamein. Heavy artillery in position, antitank guns firing missions, cooks making dumplings; Panzers on the move, aircraft, weapons and equipment glimpses into the everyday existence of the Afrikakorps soldier in the wastes of the Libyan desert and the rugged terrain of Tunisia--all of these are here in the original quality color with many detailed captions. This book offers an entirely new view of the war in Africa that will prove a useful reference for veterans, historians, military modelers, re-enactors and militaria collectors alike. As an added bonus, the final section includes color photos of the subsequent events in Sicily and Southern Italy. A brief glossary is also included. This is how the war in Africa was really fought: in color!
