"The Desert Generals"
Was poking around the shelves awhile back and now have just finished reading (for at least the second time)
"The Desert Generals" by Correlli Barnett.
A very well written book about the British Generals in North Africa in WWII. He gives what seems a fair shake to Montgomery, while making it plain Monty was using the organization and plans setup by previous generals against a very under-supplied and overwhelmed Africa Korps. Most present day historians would agree with this, but I guess this was amoung the first books to come out with this when it was published in 1960. It was updated/revised in 1982, with lots of notes and commentary relating to the hubbub it caused.
Actually, anyone know of a good book about the German generals in North Africa in WWII? Preferably written by a German or at least not American, British or French to get another view (other than from the winners)?
