Tobruk is the longest siege in British military history and this study of the action is a rare book - an analytical reassessment by a veteran of the campaign. The volume has three parts: the siege, in which the Australian 9th Division held out against Rommel's Afrika Korps: the breakout, where the British 70th Division created a corridor towards the Eighth Army; and an important appraisal of "the Desert Fox," Erwin Rommel. As examination of World War Two events pass from nostalgia to pure history, this important volume will not only stand as testimony to brave Allied defence but will add significantly to existing literature on its subject. 17 maps.
