On the question of books.

Osprey has been mentioned, it’s okay. I personally prefer Carver, although it all predates the release of ULTRA information, and I think he intended it as a teachable moment.

There is one specific book in English, called ‘Operation Crusader’, funnily enough, by Richard Humble. Can be picked up cheap. It’s not great.

Inside the Afrika Korps is a great rant by the Ia of 15.PD, Kriebel. He did of course have much to rant about.

My favourite operational study is ‘The Sidi Rezeg Battles’, which is the unofficial Official South African History. It’s pretty awesome.

Haven’t read ‘Early Battles of 8th Army’, I think.

All the best
