    Fairly good popular history about WWII's theatre in Africa. Includes a plethora of pictures.

    As a heads up, this is not light reading by any means. Mr. Lewin has crafted a very in-depth study of the Afrika Korps, its leadership, victories, and defeat. While it is not laid out like a traditional textbook, this needs to be read by anyone wanting to be conversant in the WWII African Fighting, warfighting tactics in general, and desert fighting tactics specifically when it comes to tanks and armored vehicles.

    For those of you wanting an in-depth study of Rommel, you won't find it here. What you will find is (IMHO) a very good breakdown of the man's personality as it relates to his military leadership style and how he turned a decent group of fighting units into an amazing group that is still spoken of with awe by experts in the field today.

    The author also is very honest in the failures of the Korps, its allies, and enemies as well. While some armchair generals and historians try to use the lack of a reliable supply-chain as the only reason Rommel failed at various times, Mr. Lewin is honest in those situations where Rommel did not take advantage of situations or misread them completely. The same applies to his Italian allies where they failed (not always) and where the British just couldn't seem to get their act together.

    If you have any interest in these subjects, then this book is for you. It may just take you some time to get through it.

    Find it. Buy it. Read it!
