Behind the Scenes War Story I'm a fan of the historian Stephen Sears. This book, from American Heritage, tells the story of the war in Northern Africa during World War II. What I especially liked about the book was that it painted  human portraits of the players, specially General Rommel. High recommended for those interested in the Second World War.
