This was an interesting book about the role of the Afrika Korps in the African Theatre during WWII. However, I was disappointed. The author was a military man but not a writer, and his descriptions of the military maneuvers tended to be dense and sometimes difficult to follow. The book does not stand alone well as an introduction to the Afrika Korps, and I think it was only my own previous background knowledge that allowed me to follow as much as I did.
