    Overview

  • Portrait of this famous World War II unit at the height of its success
  • Completely illustrated with photos, maps, and diagrams--in color where available

    In the sands of the Western Desert in 1941-42, Erwin Rommel made history as the Desert Fox, waging a brilliant and bold campaign against the British. Beginning at El Agheila in March 1941, the Afrika Korps--frequently outnumbered--drove the British steadily east across Libya and into Egypt. The German offensive eventually ground to a halt in a series of battles at El Alamein. In impressive detail, George Bradford depicts what it was like to serve and fight in the Afrika Korps, from its tanks and equipment to its battles and daily life.

    The Armor Modeling and Preservation Society
    "A good balance between the level of presented detail and the pace of the story."
