It can be read with pleasure and profit by anyone from a teen-aged war gamer to a National War College student concerned with the role of special forces in twentieth-century warfare. How such forces were y in the second of the century's two world wars, and particularly by the Anglo-Americans-has remained an issue given only limited exploration in existing assessments.

The Western Desert Force (WDF) was a British Army formation active in Egypt during the Western Desert Campaign of the Second World War. On 17 June 1940. On 17 June 1940, the headquarters of the British 6th Infantry Division was designated as the Western Desert Force. The formation consisted of the British 7th Armoured Division and the 4th Indian Infantry Division. The force was commanded by Major-General Richard Nugent O'Connor.

The wartime photographs, and the concise text, cover the entire course of the struggle in the air.

Between 1940 and 1943 Italy's Regia Aeronautica and then Germany's Luftwaffe waged a concerted aerial campaign against the British, yet apart from the bitter fight for Malta, this aspect of the conflict is rarely given the attention it deserves. Anthony Tucker-Jones, in this vivid photographic history, provides a fascinating introduction to it. The wartime photographs, and the concise text, cover the entire course of the struggle in the air.

“The desert was a small raider’s paradise”—General John HackettThis compelling account, prepared for the War Cabinet after the Second World War, tells the inside story of the Special Forces’ work in the Desert campaign. It explores their revolutionary new strand of warfare, from intelligence gathering to raids, reconnaissance missions to enemy disruption, and shows how operations were conducted in extreme terrain and miles behind enemy lines. It celebrates the courage of these handpicked men who became masters of surprise and stealth, featuring unsung heroes along with famous names such as Ralph Bagnold, Bob Laycock, David Stirling, George Jellicoe, Geoffrey Keyes VC and Derek Mills- Roberts. Drawing on the experiences of some of Britain’s most famous ‘irregular’ units, Special Forces charts their remarkable successes against far larger forces and their crucial role within the 8th Army and Allied campaign.

Insanity
This is an extremely detailed history of LRDG operations. Well worth having. The only disappointment is that it does not contain a single photograph! It is not a history of the SAS in North Africa.

An excerpt from the review on StrategyPage.Com:

'This volume, originally published by Britain's National Archives in hardback in 2011, includes two formerly secret reports written shortly after the Second World War by Brigadier Wynterts. The first covers the operations of the Long Range Desert Group in North Africa from mid-1940 through March 1943, and the second with those of various other special operations forces in the Middle East and North Africa from early 1943 to April of 1943, such as Commandos, Layforce, and the SAS and SBS. Although a `first look' at the events, and thus naturally almost entirely from the British side, both works are highly informative, describing the origins, formation, organization, and above all operations of these troops. Literally scores of missions are covered, not merely the more glamorous one that ended up spawning memoirs and even motion pictures. A very useful book for those with an interest in special operations or in the desert war.'
