The North African campaign of the Second World War took place in North Africa from 10 June 1940 to 13 May 1943

The North African campaign of the Second World War took place in North Africa from 10 June 1940 to 13 May 1943. It included campaigns fought in the Libyan and Egyptian deserts (Western Desert Campaign, also known as the Desert War) and in Morocco and Algeria (Operation Torch), as well as Tunisia (Tunisia Campaign). The campaign was fought between the Allies, many of whom had colonial interests in Africa dating from the late 19th century, and the Axis Powers

The British campaign in North Africa in 1940-1942 against the Italians and ultimately the German Afrika Korps, became crucial as a prelude to the . Tank from Rommel's Afrika Korps mired in a desert flash flood, North Africa, 1942.

The British campaign in North Africa in 1940-1942 against the Italians and ultimately the German Afrika Korps, became crucial as a prelude to the eventual "second front" in the European Theater of World War II. If North Africa had been lost, D-Day would have been delayed at least and Germany could have focused on defeating the Soviet Union, with disasterous consequences for the Allies.

This book focuses on discussing the war in North Africa from the Italian perspective, using Italian sources liberally throughout. Greene and Massignani give a good impression of the state of mind of the Italian soldiery in North Africa.

In the deserts of North Africa and the Middle East some of World War II's greatest legends were born as Erwin Rommel the "Desert Fox" led his Afrika Korps against the "Desert Rats" of the British 8th Army led by Bernard Montgomery.

This book is completely mistitled and misleading. It is really about the Italian effort in North Africa, their TO&E, doctrine, equipment, and leadership. Even the sidebars are almost exclusively about the Italians. Perhaps the author's felt that if they titled the book properly, they wouldn't get half the readers that a book using Rommel's name on the cover would entice. Rommel is almost an afterthought, and usually it is so the authors can point out his mistakes.

However, if you are a serious student of the North African campaign, and not learning anything new anymore about it, then here is a refreshing and arguably overlooked aspect of the desert war that is presented in a readable, well researched study. Unfortunately, the authors seem to stretch what happened to fit their narrative. At rare occurrences amongst the pages covering Italian formations and seemingly an accounting of each casualty they caused the Commonwealth forces, there will be one line or two to describe what Rommel was doing or wanted to do.

This book covers Rommel's efforts in Africa fron the time he started as commander to his final defeat at Alamein. It contains much information about the Italian part in these battles and other aspects not covered well by English language studies of this campaign. I have the highest possible recommendation for this book for those interested in the war in North Africa.

The Italians, as one of the most-mocked military forces of the Second World War, rarely get the depth of treatment that their erstwhile German allies receive. This book focuses on discussing the war in North Africa from the Italian perspective, using Italian sources liberally throughout. Greene and Massignani give a good impression of the state of mind of the Italian soldiery in North Africa. Recommended.
