A gripping account and perhaps the most authoritative work ever written about the Siege of Tobruk in the North African theatre of operations during World War II. Frank Harrison, the author, who served at Tobruk with the British Army, peppers his narrative with desperate small unit actions, the heroism of individuals and not least the shortcomings of commanders on both sides of the Allied/Axis divide including Erwin Rommel. Harrison’s is truly a tale of blood, toil, tears and sweat.
