Rommel's Desert Warriors provides a complete visual history of Rommel and his Afrika Korps during the Second World War.Erwin Rommel was appointed commander of the Afrika Korps in the February of 1941. The intention was to create a unit that could act as a blocking force to support the Italian army struggling against British forces in Libya. It was during this time in North Africa that Rommel earned the title The Desert Fox. The North African Campaign became a desperate game of hide and seek as the British and Germans rallied against each other with varying degrees of success in the harsh wasteland.This book is a fantastic visual exploration of the hard-fought campaign for Africa and includes hundreds of photos of men, tanks and other weapons, uniforms and desert terrain, many of which are rare and have never before been published. This is an ideal reference guide for World War II history fans, scholars and modelers alike.
