Pressestimmen

[Latimer's] extensive research is evident both in the book's organization and in the endnotes...This well-written and-organized book is highly recommended. -- Lt. Col. Charles M. Minyard Library Journal 20021001 Exhaustively researched and comprehensive...[Latimer's] inclusion of veterans' recollections and memoirs will grab the interest of generalists looking for something more than simple war stories. Latimer's critical but balanced view of Rommel, British general Montgomery and others is welcome; the inclusion of their opinions of, and dealings with, eachother are in keeping with the best professional military history...All aspects of the battle are covered...All well presented in a carefully crafted and exciting style...Painstaking yet gripping, this should be the definitive account of the battle itself for years to come. Publishers Weekly 20021104 Jon Latimer's Alamein is the work of a former British Army officer, a meticulous military history inclusive of accurate and often hitherto unknown details. It is a classic, near-encyclopedic reconstruction. -- John Lukas Los Angeles Times 20021124 Latimer meticulously describes how, after a couple of dispiriting years of desert warfare, British and Commonwealth forces achieved in October 1942 the victory they craved over German and Italian forces at El Alamein in Egypt. -- Lawrence D. Freedman Foreign Affairs 20030101
