about this item

For a period during World War II, the isolated Libyan fortress of Tobruk captured the world’s attention. Why did the Allied defenders of Tobruk successfully hold out against Rommel for 9 months in 1941, when they fell to Axis forces in just 24 hours the following year? Tobruk was one of the greatest Allied victories—and one of the worst Allied defeats of World War II. This book presents a new perspective on Tobruk, utilizing a wealth of primary and secondary references and comparing the 1941 and 1942 battles.
