Afrika Korps, 1941-43 Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Ron Volstad

Part of the Elite series


Osprey's study of the German Afrikakorps of World War II (1939-1945).

The campaign in North Africa between September 1940 and May 1943 holds not only an enduring fascination for postwar generations; but also a perhaps unique degree of nostalgia for some surviving participants.

The campaign was no less costly in terms of human lives and material than many others; but regret at the cost is accompanied by positive memories in the minds of many veterans.

This is not to suggest that the dead have been forgotten; but an almost mystical bond nevertheless exists, even between former enemies, amongst veterans of the desert campaign.

Gordon Williamson examines the history, organisation and uniforms of Rommel's Afrikakorps.
