Counter New and enlarged edition! This outstanding contribution to the history of the Second World War, which gives a complete account of the Desert Campaign of 1940-43, is now better than ever, with new commentary and fresh documentary evidence to back up the author's original conclusions even more strongly. Still here are the interviews with almost every senior Desert Officer, information from private papers, and intimate portraits of the five most influential men in the battles. 352 pages, 16 b/w illus., 5 x 7 3/4.
