New from Casemate - March 2015

Recommended Posts

The review team here at BM will be receiving a copy of this very interesting book to review in the near future. The contents of this book are taken from the dairised events of a mobile radar unit after the battle of El Alamein, as Rommel's Afrika Korps was pursued across the desert by the Eighth Army. There is also a detailed account of "Unit 606"; a specialised radar crew that followed behind the battlefront of the Eighth Army in the Western Desert during WW2. the

Key points:

• Based on diary entries and a memoir, this is a human story by a gifted writer that recreates a lost time and landscapes.
• A unique picture of the military operations of a small mobile radar unit in the Western Desert after the El Alamein breakout in 1942.
• Deals with the daily lives of the men and their interactions with the landscapes and peoples through which they pass in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia.
• Sheds light on a key but little known aspect of the Eighth Army’s Western Desert Campaign, the first in British military history in which the RAF and the army collaborated so closely.

For those who would like to get the book before the review is published, can obtain it from Casemate UK.

Apologies for the low-resolution image shown here. A better quality one will be made available soon.
