Rafbók

"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.

"Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

Birgitta Johansson

"Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

Birgitta Lindh

"Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
