A blow-by-blow account of the culminating campaign of the Second World War in North Africa : the bloody struggle to evict the Afrika Korps from Tunisia in 1943. Cut off from their supplies, and crushed between the experienced British Eighth Army advancing from Libya in the east, and the green but numerous American forces moving from Algeria in the west, the Germans still put up a determined and ferocious fight. David Rolf's study emphasises personal account , taking the reader to the very heart of some of the war's bitterest fighting.
As the Afrika Korps withdrew westwards after their bruising defeat at El Alamein, it became apparent that Axis forces would not be able to maintain their hold over Libya. Rommel pulled his troops back to Tunisia, digging in along the Mareth Line, and turned westwards to counter the massive Anglo-American 'Torch' landings in French North Africa. A series of bitter battles in the craggy hills of Tunisia followed, including the bloody battle of the Kasserine Pass. With the Eighth Army displaying skills honed in two years of desert fighting, and the Allies relying on their superiority in equipment and manpower Allied might eventually overpowered Rommel's army and, in May 1943, Axis forces surrendered. David Rolf has made use of rare and valuable source material to present the Tunisian campaign in its entirety. His emphasis is on personal accounts, and his use of contemporary dialogue takes the reader to the heart of the emotions experienced by units fighting on both sides, and adds colour to this intricate 'battle of wits' between legendary commanders. The result is a brilliant example of historical writing and a unique insight into six months of stubborn fighting.
