I just finished another book that I can heartily recommend. It is titled: “Luck was Lacking, but Valor was not; The Italian Army in North Africa 1940-1943” For modelers it has many wonderful pictures of Italian equipment and many of which I have never seen. There are numerous references, many individual stories, but also a comprehensive overview of Italian participation in the war in North Africa with particular reference to combat effectiveness and bravery against better supplied and equiped foes. I wish there were more models of Italian soft skins. The had many pieces of artillery mounted ‘en portee’ on trucks and since most of all the supplies used by both German and Italian forces were carried to the front by Italian vehicles, there were many types in service. The authors are: Ralph Riccio & Massimiliano Afriero. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the war in North Africa or interested in modeling Italian WWII vehicles.

@Elefant6 Cool. I’m planning on making a start once I’ve finished one of the Star Wars novels I’m in the middle of.
The next one seems to be difficult to find in the UK, but I’ll keep looking.

It’s perhaps peculiar how Col. Rowe was assassinated.
