Product Description

Publisher: Osprey

Author: Jon Diamond

Defeat by Rommel at Tobruk and by the Japanese in Burma unfairly tarnished Wavell's reputation, when in fact he should be remembered as Britain's greatest strategist of World War II. His subordinates won numerous campaigns against Axis forces early in the war under difficult conditions in far-flung commands where language barriers and long distance logistics were their greatest enemies. This book will appeal to anyone interested in the Desert War or the fighting in Burma, Malaya, Indonesia, or the Philippines from 1940-1942. (pb)
