  1. Have you read An Army At Dawn yet? An excellent review of the US involvement in Africa in ’42-’43.

  2. I have almost bought it several times. A couple of years before that a book came out on the British experience there that may be the piece of military history I have ever read. It did a brilliant job of mixing descriptions of strategy with operations with tactics with politics. Let me see if I can find it so I can give the title…War Without Hate by John Bierman and Colin Smith. Wat Without Hate, incidentally, was going to be the title of the book Rommel hoped to write after the war.

    Are you sitting on the fence for that one? I’m guessing you meant to say “that may be the BEST piece of military history.” Though perhaps it was the worst. Surely not the only. Thickest perhaps? Thinnest for teh win!

    Also, “Wat Without Hate, incidentally …” Tsk, tsk Rommy.
