Book Description Souvenir Press, 1959. Cloth. Book Condition: acceptable. 1959 - slight cracking to top edge of jacket spine, very minor shelf wear, price clipped, previous sellers sticker inside cover, 1cmx3cm. This is an exciting, moving, evocative book. Set in the narrow belt of land ex- tending along the Mediterranean from Ancient Alexandria to the Tunisian border, it tells the story of a handful of gallant young men who fought a personal, bitter war with the enemy. From El Alamein to the gateway of Tripoli, from Takali to Bir Hakeim, they forced breaches through which poured the tanks and soldiers of the Eighth Army. They sank Axis ships bringing supplies to the Afrika Korps, and at great risk to their lives protected the âsuicideâ Malta convoys. Lybian nomads often watched them swoop out of the clouds like angry hornets as they pounced on their targets. Grazianiâs soldiers nicknamed them the âScourge of God", and to the tank crews of Rommelâs Panzer divisions they were known as âthe whispering deathâ. They were the men of an RAF desert squadron. Men drawn from all walks of life to ï¬ght for their country in a harsh and alien land. When they killed, they did so without hatred or remorse, only remembering their own diminishing numbers. And when fear sometimes took hold of them it was because they too were of ï¬esh and blood and to die at the age of twenty is a prospect to freeze any heart. Bookseller Inventory # 1577
