ROMMEL'S DESERT WARRIORS 1941-42 is a highly illustrated record of the Afrika Korps in Libya and Tunisia during the North African Campaign of World War Two. Formed in the early months of 1941, Hitler personally chose Erwin Rommel to command this elite group but neither could have foreseen the extraordinary levels of success that the corps achieved. After being quickly cobbled together from a number of smaller regiments, the goal of the Afrika Korps was to bolster the failing Italian forces in the area and stem the seemingly tireless flow of Allied attacks. Through a series of epic battles and counter attacks, they were eventually able to drive the Allies to the very fringes of Egypt. Fighting over difficult and immensely hostile terrain, troops had to endure extreme weather conditions of the North African desert, as well as being almost constantly outgunned and outnumbered. The Afrika Korps were eventually undone at the Second Battle of El Alamein in November 1942, marking a pivotal turning point in the entire war. Using an extensive collection of rare and previously unpublished photographs, together with detailed captions and accompanying text, Rommel's Desert Warriors 1941-42 provides a unique insight into the troops, uniforms, desert terrain, tanks, weapons and much more. This book is further enhanced by the presence of an eight page colour insert showcasing weapons, gear and uniforms, making this an ideal reference for Second World War enthusiast, re-enactors, scholars and modelers alike.
