"This is the story of the Desert Army, following it through thousands of miles of hard campaigning from the Nile delta to Tunis, Sicily, and up the rugged spine of Italy to the foothills of the Alps. No army in the Second World War marched so far or fought for so long." "This book is built on the memories of Eighth Army veterans, collected from all over the world. It includes personal accounts of the battles fought at Sidi Rezegh, Alamein, in Sicily and at Cassino - and all the way to the Gothic Line - and of the end of Eighth Army's 3,000-mile march to victory. It is a story that deserves to be told, about an army that deserves to be remembered."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
