Description

"This book provides a strategic overview of the war that is interweaved with fascinating personal accounts, its campaigns and battles." - Professor Geoffrey Roberts.

If the Second World War was Hitler's war, the vast military conflict that engulfed the Mediterranean between 1940 and 1945 was Mussolini's. In this exciting and illuminating account, Anthony Tucker-Jones explores the major campaigns across the whole Mediterranean, from the struggle for control of the Suez Canal to the Allied landings in the French Riviera in the summer of 1944.

Includes:
• Battle for Crete
• The Desert Air War
• Second Battle of El Alamein
• Operation Crusader
• Invasion of Sicily (Operation Husky)

The actions of famous generals are introduced, including Erwin Rommel, Bernard Montgomery and George S. Patton, and how their strategic offensives pushed back Axis forces. Augmented by fascinating photographs and forwarded by Professor Geoffrey Roberts, The Battle for the Mediterranean tells the story of an all-encompassing conflict, by land, air and sea.
