    Desert warfare, well-captured

    This book falls far short of Pressfield's Gates of Fire, but that's gentle criticism since most books do. It's a novel of the Long Range Desert Group (LRDG), an early version of the Special Forces, in its war against the Germans in North Africa. The strength of the book is, as in Gates of Fire, how Pressfield captures the period. One feels transported to WWII England complete with all the trepidations and hopes that would accompany such a move. Similarly, though I believed prior to reading the book that I had an idea of what desert warfare was like, I realized midway through the book that I did not. Pressfield grants fascinating revelations about the combat that occurred in North Africa. For example, it was largely a civilized war, if one can imagine such a thing, fought without malice, with both sides viewing the other as an adversary rather than an enemy. For example, it was customary when a tank under fire burst into flames to hold one's fire and permit the men to escape. Follow the LRDG as it ultimately is tasked with hunting down and killing Rommel, the Desert Fox. It is an entertaining read, deserving of 3.5 stars, though I was not permitted to be so precise.

    Good read

    This book is very well written although it could have given a little more detail about the Desert Fox himself. It did do a nice job keeping you interested though!
