Book review: The Desert War 1940-1942

The Desert War 1940-1942 is from the Imperial War Museum and looks at the North African theatre of operations during World War II. It is looked at from an Allied perspective, as is to be expected with it having been written by the Imperial War Museum. It contains plenty of photographs taken in North Africa during the fighting and also numerous personal recounts from those involved. As well as examining various battles and pushes for victory, other aspects (such as how the soldiers relaxed away from the front lines and the role of aircraft) are also looked at and also contain personal recounts. An easily accessible and informative book.
