Pendulum of War: The Three Battles of El Alamein by Niall Barr


Niall Barr's book is arguably the definitive study on the turning point in the North Africa theater of World War II. It goes beyond the debate between the supporters of British generals Claude Auchinleck and Bernard Montgomery to looking at the strengths and mistakes of each commander's approach to leading the British 8th Army to stopping and defeating German Gen. Erwin "The Desert Fox" Rommel's Afrika Corps in Egypt during the summer and fall of 1942. Check catalog for availability.
