Hello all,

Looking for suggestions for best one-volume book on the UK/German/Italian portion of the North African campaign (I already have books on USA in Morocco, Tunisia, and Algeria).

Thanks!

I found the Desert War by Alan Moorhead very good.
Can be had on Amazon for about $2

It is an excellent book - my version is called "African Trilogy" Poor Alan Moorehead - one of the best war correspondents and communicators spent the last 15 years of his life unable to speak, read or write.
