About this title


This is a true account of a race to reach Cairo, Egypt between Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, the Desert Fox, and a second lieutenant of the US Army, Jim Hudson. It started on July 15, 1942, only seven months after the United States received a devastating attack at Pearl Harbor. Rommel had just taken Tobruk, Libya, forcing the British 8th Army to retreat back to El Alamein, Egypt, and Jim boarded the first troopship from New York City for Africa to start the long trail back to victory. This is the account of that historic fact told by the Official Photographer aboard that ship, Pasteur, with 5,000 other GIs.But was there more to it than just another boatload of soldiers and airmen to an overseas post? Could they play a key role in stopping Rommel and turning the tide of victory to the Allied Armies? Or could they have been the pivotal piece of the gigantic puzzle that allowed the Allies to achieve total victory in World War II? And who won the race to Cairo?
