Desert Armour

I spotted a new book from Osprey titled Desert Armour Tank Warfare in North Africa: Beda Fomm to Operation Crusader, 1940–41 by Robert Forczyk. As the title states, it will cover the early battles in A.S. One can see from the Table of Contents posted on the website that the authors covers doctrine, organization, and then the actual operations. Looking forward to reading the book to see if it adds materially to the history of the early A.S. battles.


Book is scheduled for release on 28 February. I have preordered.

Pista! Jeff

Thank you for the additional find. I will wait to read the first before deciding whether to preorder the second.

My concern is whether Forczyk accessed Italian primary sources. If he did, then the books could be a nice addition to the library. If not, then another Anglo-centric account. Forczyk lives in the US, so I am wondering how much Italian material he collected for his books.
