Opertations in North Africa and The Middle East 1939 - 1942 Reviews

"Grehan and Mace present for the first time a collection of unabridged despatches from operations covering Tobruk, Crete, Syria, and East Africa. The Middle East Command was formed in August 1939, under General Sir Archibald Wavell, who assembled a multinational force when Italy declared war on France and Britain in 1940. Wavell's mixed force faced over 200,000 Italian troops in Libya and over 200,000 in Italian East Africa. Outnumbered, he went on the offensive. His first and second dispatches describe his operations in the Western Desert. The third covers British support for Greece and the defence and withdrawal from Crete. The last two are from General Auchinleck and provide a detailed account of the operations in Libya. Grehan and Mace reproduce the despatches as they first appeared some 70 years ago, unedited and unmodified."--ProtoView
