Operation Scipio

BS Barnes Sentinel Press

This original study of one of the 8th Armies forgotten victories. Akarit has always been overshadowed by Alamein and Mareth. This book deals with the last great pitched battle between the 8th Army and the old enemy, Panzer Army, Africa. Hour by hour following each battalion on its bloody course during different stages of the action. First hand accounts and contemporary photographs paint an all too vivid picture of this Tunisian killing ground.

The interviews are wide ranging, from Spitfire pilots to gunners, sappers and padres along with men in the front line. Some are funny, poignant and engrossing, others are heart breaking and tragic.
