More About Alamein by Iain Gale
 
 
 
Overview

Superb war novelist, Iain Gale, moves into the twentieth century and World War Two, telling the story of the eleven days that would change the course of history.

There are some battles that change the course of history: Alamein is one of those.

In October 1942, Britain and its allies were in trouble. Germany and its Axis partners were winning ground in Europe, in Russia, in the Atlantic and they were poised to take the Suez Canal. But it was in this North Africa battle that the stand was made, that the tide of World War Two began to turn.

It was a battle of strong characters: Rommel and Montgomery lead their men through an extraordinary eleven day battle, in unforgiving terrain, amid the swirling sandstorms and the desert winds.

Iain Gale, author of the outstanding historical novel Four Days in June, tells this dramatic story through seven dynamic characters, many of whom are based on real people. Drawn from both sides of the conflict, they include a major from a Scottish brigade, a young lieutenant in the thick of the tank battle, an Australian sergeant and a charismatic Italian commander of a parachute battalion. Through their eyes we see the battle unfold; the strategy, the individual actions and skirmishes, the fear, the determination and the extraordinary courage on both sides.
