The Life and Death of the Afrika Corps

By Ronald Lewin
Quadrangle, 1977
197 pp. $10.00

Military history at its analytical best, incorporating new information from electronic (code) intelligence. Lewin, previously a biographer of Rommel, attributes Afrika Korps success to four factors: leadership, technological superiority, standardization, and organizational improvisation. The work is flawed only by its relative neglect of the air battle.
