"Overall, this was a rewarding book to read... Griffith provides a useful explanation of British and German tactics, why they developed and how they changed as a result of experience... Solid explanation of tactical doctrine in the desert, contains material useful in creating up to five scenarios." --Bob Barnetson, Tabletop Gaming News (April 15, 2008)"Paddy Griffith's World War II Desert Tactics explains the tactical challenges faced by Allied and Axes forces battling in North Africa's deserts. From strengths to weaknesses and special challenges on both sides, it packs in plenty of military insights on battle and strategy." --California Bookwatch (May 2008)"It is a book of a time when both sides were learning what worked and what didn't. A most engrossing read that I am positive you will also enjoy." --Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (March 2008)
