Description:

This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: For Great Britain, there were two pivotal battles in the Second World War. One was the Battle of Britain. The other was El Alamein. There, in October 1942, in a remote part of the desert between Libya and Egypt, the British army, under the command of General Montgomery, won an epic battle of attrition with Rommel's Afrika Korps. It was a defeat from which Rommel would never recover and a turning point in the war, famously celebrated by Churchill as "the end of the beginning"--the line in the sand that Hitler's forces were never able to cross. Like his definitive history of the Battle of Britain, The Most Dangerous Enemy, Stephen Bungay's Alamein is a trenchant re-examination of an event that has been cloaked in myth.

Book Description AURUM PRESS, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. New ed. Language: English . Brand New Book. El Alamein was the World War II land battle Britain had to win. By the summer of 1942 Rommel s German forces were threatening to sweep through the Western Desert and drive on to the Suez Canal, and Britain was in urgent need of military victory. Then, in October, after 12 days of attritional tank battle and artillery bombardment, Montgomery s Eighth Army, with Australians and New Zealanders playing crucial roles in a genuinely international Allied fighting force, broke through the German and Italian lines at El Alamein. It was a turning-point in the war after which, in Churchill s words, we never had a defeat . Stephen Bungay s book is as much at home analysing the crucial logistics of keeping desert armies supplied with petrol and tank parts as it is reappraising the combat strategies of Montgomery and Rommel, and ranges widely from the domestic political pressures on Churchill to the aerial siege of Malta, key to the control of the Mediterranean. And in a chapter on The Soldier s War , Bungay graphically evokes the phantasmagoric blur of thunderous cannonade and tormenting heat that was the lot of the individual men who actually fought and died in the desert.
