Praise for Iain Gale:`A powerful novel of men at war. A triumph' Bernard Cornwell`His brutal, bloody detail catches the chaos of battle. His prose is a sand-blown lens from the front-line. Today's readers will feel both shock and shame at the sacrifices made on both sides by the heroes of Alamein' Quentin Letts, Daily Mail`My father was at Alamein and Gale captures many of the stories he told me. This is Gale's best book. He reveals the chaos, triumph and sadness of the desert war expertly showing every protagonists' point of view.' Patrick Mercer, OBE, MP`A treat for every history buff, and a vivid picture of men at war' Scotland on Sunday`An old-fahioned tale of military strategy and valour' Glasgow Herald
