The struggle of the Italians and Germans against the Allies in Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia between 1940 and 1943 was a clash made for tanks. Anthony Tucker-Jones’s Armoured Warfare in the North African Campaign is a vivid photographic history that offers dramatic insight into the experiences of tank crews on both sides.
The empty open spaces of North Africa appeared to be ideal terrain for tanks, yet the harsh desert conditions tested men and machinery to the limit. These images give a vivid impression of what it was like to fight in and live with the tanks of the day—the German Mk IIIs and Mk IVs and the Tiger, the British Matildas and Valentines, and the American Grants and Shermans that contributed so much to the Allied victory.

This is the perfect book for anyone who is a student of WWII combat history. You will find rare photos of tanks, artillery, aircraft and ground troops. Most, if not all, are candid photos not staged or posed for the camera man. As Anthony Tucker-Jones says on the cover of this book, it is a collection of ?Rare Photographs from Wartime Archives?. I would also recommed his other book, Armoured Warfare on the Eastern Front.
