70 illustrations Superb drawings by a German war artist who traveled with the Afrika Korps The story of the campaign from the German soldiers perspective Detailed military history of the major actions of the campaign The German offensive in North Africa, coupling the prowess of Rommel, The Desert Fox, with the superb lan of the German Afrika Korps, is widely regarded as one of the most astonishing military achievements of World War II. Rommel had been sent to Libya in February 1941 to bail out the Italian Army, whose short-lived invasion of Egypt in the fall of 1940 had been repulsed by the British. His ability to adapt his troops to desert warfare is a textbook example of training and tactics in harsh conditions. German war artist Kurt Caesar traveled with the Afrika Korps and illustrated the campaign with evocative and detailed drawings. Rommels Year of Victory combines these illustrations with a new, gripping narrative by James Lucas that captures the day-to-day life of the German soldier in the desert. James Lucas served as an infantryman in the Tunisian campaign in World War II. He is an acknowledged expert on the German military history of the period, as well as a widely published military author. Rommel, accepting the definition that the North African battlefield was a tacticians paradise but a quartermasters hell, evolved battle drills to meet a given tactical situation. . . . [He] was deeply aware that the Axis armies in Africa would always lack supplies and believed that he could partly overcome this deficiency and gain victories through his style of intensive training.
