Tropical Army In Color Book
For the first time ever in print, this book presents a pictorial chronology of the campaign in Africa and the Deutschen Afrikakorps (DAK), the German Afrikakorps, the way the soldiers themselves experienced it, the way they lived it: in color. More than 150 photographs are derived from what, at that time, was revolutionary original color slide film. These pictures portray the leaders, men, and equipment of the Afrikakorps, from the arrival of its first units in Tripoli, Libya, through its eventual withdrawal back to Tunisia, including color photos of the subsequent events in Sicily and Southern Italy, with many detailed captions and a glossary. This entirely new view of the war in Africa will prove a useful reference for veterans, historians, military modelers, re-enactors, and militaria collectors alike.
