Product Description

Publisher: Pan Macmillan

Author: Robert Lyman

Beginning on 10th April 1941, and lasting for 240 days, the siege of Tobruk is a mesmerising tale of human endurance and heroism. It is an epic story of extraordinary resilience as the Libyan portís 24,000 defenders met increasingly desperate attempts by Rommelís Panzer divisions to break through the hurriedly thrown-up defences. It was a battle of bayonets and grenades against tanks, of David versus Goliath. (pb)
