Lieutenant-Colonel Schoullars' contribution to the prolifc series of NZ WWII official histories covers one of the pivotal campaigns of the war in North Africa, which halted Rommel's drive to capture Egypt preceeding the eventual turn of tide with the defeat of the Axis at Alamein. Such was the naturue of the crisis facing the demoralised Allied forces that units of the NZ Division resting and refitting in Syria, after intensive fighing of the Libyan Desert, were recalled to the defensive line west of Cairo. Not only were the British forces dispirited after suffering reverses, but there was also a crisis of the command structure. While mainly examining the role of NZ units in the Summer battles, Schoullar's account also offers a sweeping over-view of the actions of the Eighth Army in this crucial phase of the Desert campaigns leading up to the consolidation of the Alemein line and the break through there that led to the defeat of the Axis in North Africa. "Battle For Egypy" should be required reading for any serious student of the North African Desert war of WWII.
