About this Item: München [i.e. Rastatt] : Moewig. Condition: Gut. Ausgabe: Dt. Erstausg. Umfang/Format: 400 Seiten : Illustrationen, Kt. , 18 cm Anmerkungen: Lizenzausg. d. Verlag Molden, Wien, München, Zürich Einbandart und Originalverkaufspreis: kartoniert : DM 8.803-8118-4300-1 kartoniert : DM 8.80 Sachgebiet: Politik, Wehrwesen Zum Buch In ungewöhnlich packender Weise schildert der britische Offizier und Zeitgeschichtler Kenneth J. Macksey - auch im deutschen Sprachraum bereits durch zahlreiche Fachpublikationen und sein Buch über Rommel bekannt die Entstehung und den Kampf der deutschen Afrika-verbände von den ersten, für die Briten völlig überraschend kommenden Vorstößen des Afrika-Korps im Frühjahr 1941 bis zur entscheidenden Zweiten Schlacht von El Alamein im Oktober 1942, in der die vor den Toren Alexandriens stehende Panzerarmee Afrika zum endgültigen Rückzug gezwungen wurde. Sechs Monate lang ging der Kampf um Nordafrika in der Festung Tunesien noch weiter, die die Deutschen und die Italiener, nur völlig unzureichend mit Nachschub und Material versorgt und als Heeresgruppe Afrika längst von der eigenen Führung abgeschrieben, im Mai 1943 schließlich die Waffen strecken mußten. Rommel, der Wüstenfuchs , und seine Afrikaner vom Anfang bis Ende des Heißen Abenteuers Nordafrika das ist das Thema dieses Buches. Für Adolf Hitler war Afrika ein unbedeutender Nebenkriegsschauplatz, für Mussolini ging es um die Wiedererrichtung des Impero Romano , später bloß noch um die Wahrung des bedrohten italienischen Kolonialbesitzes. Für die Briten ging es um Ägypten, den Suezkanal und die Erdölländer des Nahen und Mittleren Ostens. Für die Soldaten aber ging es jeden Tag um Leben und Tod. Die Reihe Moewig Dokumentation erscheint gleichzeitig in England und Amerika. Es gibt Lizenzausgaben in Japan, Frankreich, Holland, Italien, Spanien, Schweden, Brasilien und Jugoslawien. Den anerkannten Autoren vornehmlich Engländern und Amerikanern ist es gelungen, die großen Ereignisse dieses Jahrhunderts so darzustellen, daß sich in der ganzen Welt bereits über hundert Millionen Leser für ihre Bücher begeisterten. gutes Exemplar, Einband und Buchblock altersgemäß gebräunt, Gesamtzustand gut.

About this Item: BCA, London, 1979. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. BCA REPRINT, LONDON. Dust jacket complete. Original cloth boards with bright gilt titling on spine. No ownership marks. Numerous photographs. Maps. 224 pages clean and tight. Although--like Hannibal, Napoleon, and Robert E. Lee--German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel (1891-1944) met ultimately with defeat, his daring, tactical skill, charismatic leadership, and brilliant string of victories succeeded in placing him in the pantheon of great commanders. By 1942 Rommel and his Afrika Korps had converted a "side show" of World War II into a major offensive for the Axis powers. The British had been thrown back across the frontiers of Egypt until, at E1 Alamein, Rommel's army threatened Cairo, Alexandria, and the rich oil fields of the Middle East. Rommel: Battles and Campaigns provides a perceptive and incisive analysis of his entire military career, from his fighting in Rumania, Italy, and France during World War I, through his North African campaigns, to his command in Normandy and his fatal (though false) implication in the July 20 bomb plot against Hitler. Written by an expert in tank warfare, and illustrated with nearly two hundred photos and maps, this book presents a revealing, critical portrait of one of the most celebrated soldiers of World War II. Size: Sm 4to. Seller Inventory # 143506
