More About This Title The Sound of History
The Eighth Army's victory at El Alamein in November 1942 was one of the pivotal points of the Second World War and significant as the first major victory for a British Army under sole British command. The North African campaign had captured the public imagination in Britain and the victors of Alamein joined those of Agincourt and Waterloo in the ranks of British heroes. This book looks at the background to the battle, the preparations, and the battle itself. Doherty uses personal accounts, war diaries, official regimental and divisional histories, and material from numerous archives to tell the story of this timely British victory.
