'Look! They're coming straight at us'! Unteroffizier Heintze alerted his comrades. He took one of the tanks up in his sights, knocking it out barely 200 meters in front of the gun's position. The second tank continued to approach. It reeked of burned oil and cordite. The tracks rattled loudly. The steel monster was then in the Germans' position and rolled over one of the gun trails. It kept going. It was quiet again for a while. Then ten enemy tanks showed up off to the flank. The flak opened fire at 5,000 metres. When the enemy tanks had closed to 4,000 meters, the lead vehicle was hit and came to a halt. Then a second one was hit. The enemy was flabbergasted. The Germans were engaging them at ranges that were impossible to conceive. The eight remaining tanks turned and disappeared into the evening twilight. This title presents the Afrika Korps in action at Hill 208, southwest of Fort Capuzzo.

Descripción Stackpole Books, United States, 2010. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 231 x 160 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In his latest account of German soldiers in combat in World War II, Franz Kurowski journeys into the desert with the Afrika Korps, graphically depicting what it was like to sweat beneath the African sun, to taste the gritty sand, to serve under a brilliant commander like Erwin Rommel. From 1941 to 1943, this fighting force waged an impressive campaign that turned Rommel into the Desert Fox and secured the Afrika Korps a legendary place in military history. The Afrika Korps deployed to Africa as Germany s Italian allies teetered on the brink of collapse in early 1941. With high spirit and aggressive courage, the Afrika Korps roared into action and battled the British back and forth across the Western Desert--at places like El Agheila, Gazala, Tobruk, and El Alamein--for much of the next two years. The campaign then shifted into Tunisia, where the British onslaught combined with the arrival of the Americans and growing supply difficulties to force the Afrika Korps to surrender in May 1943. Kurowski s narrative focuses on the men who did the fighting, who endured not only enemy attacks but also the extremes of the desert climate, who experienced moments of sheer terror as well as occasions of humor, who saw war s savagery and its surprising, if brief, civility, and who counted themselves proud to be members of Germany s Afrika Korps.
