About this title


Some World War II battle sites, such as the D-Day beaches of
Normandy, are well known and frequently visited. The critical
battlefields of the North African campaign, which took place
between June 1940 and May 1943, are particularly
inaccessible, both because of their geographic location and
because they exist within a region that continues to be
affected by political strife and violent upheavals. Yet, in 2011
and 2012, the photographer Matthew Arnold spent several
months traveling from Egypt to Tunisia to document remote
WWII battlefields where Axis and Allied forces fought against
each other and against the elements amid challenging terrain.
Beautifully illustrated with 79 of Arnold’s color images from this project, the book commemorates the 70th anniversary of the end of the North
African campaign.

A vivid, often haunting look at North African battlefields
that have been silent and largely unobserved for more than
seventy years. Matthew Arnold's photographs are so compelling
that little imagination is needed to see opposing
armies once again sweeping across the desert.”

Rick Atkinson (American author and Pulitzer Prize winner)
