About this Item: 2004 N&M Press reprint (original pub 1954). SB. xxii + 664pp with 43 maps and diagrams. and numerous contemporary photos.Published Price £22 This, the third of eight volumes in the 18-volume official British History of the Second World War, dealing with the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern theatres, describes the nadir of British fortunes in the region. Covering the year from September 1941 to September 1942, the book opens with the latest round in the ding-dong battle in North Africa with ÔOperation CrusaderÕ, BritainÕs bid to relieve the besieged port of Tobruk and chase Rommel from the western desert. The authors emphasise how Britain was hampered by obsolescent equpiment such as the Crusader tank. Despite this, British, Australian and South African forces relieved Tobruk and entered Benghazi on Christmas Day 1941 - only to evacuate it after RommelÕs swift recovery the following month. At sea, the Royal Navy suffered serious blows with the loss of ÔArk RoyalÕ and ÔBarhamÕ and a daring Italian Ôhuman torpedoÕ attack on British ships in Alexandria harbour. Axis air attacks on Malta and convoys supplying it reached their peak in April, and the island was awarded the George Cross for its gallant defence. Rommel counter-attacked in the desert in May, defeating the Eighth Army at Gazala, and on June 21st Tobruk was lost. But the Axis attempt to take Cairo was stalled at the battle of Alam el Halfa, and after General Auchinleck was replaced by General Montgomery, the Allies prepared to go back on the offensive. With 11 appendices, 40 maps and diagrams and 40 photographs. Seller Inventory # 5882

Vol. V, 1st edition, DJ slightly chipped. From the introduction to Vol. I: "This is the first of six volumes which are to cover the campaign in the Mediterranean and Middle East from 1939 to 1945, so that on the average each volume will deal with one crowded year of war by sea, land, and air. The account is a joint one, which is particularly appropriate to this theatre because the activities of the three Services were closely interlocked from the first. 'The War in the Mediterranean and Middle East' includes the struggle for control of the communications in the Mediterranean and Red Seas; the ebb and flow of the enemy's attempts to invade Egypt; the campaigns in Greece, Crete, Iraq, and Syria; the destruction of Italy's East African Empire; the defeat of the German and Italian forces in North Africa; the capture of Sicily; the campaign on the mainland of Italy; and the operations in the Aegean, the Adriatic, and the Balkans. Every variety of ground was fought over from desert to mountain, in conditions ranging from extreme heat to bitter cold, and with every discomfort from sandstorms to snow. The forces of every Dominion and almost every colony in the Commonwealth took part at one time or another, as well as contingents from ten of the other Allied nations.". Seller Inventory # 38520
