Third volume in the army series of Australia in the War of 1939-1945, vividly describes the experience and achievements of Australians involved in the fighting in north Africa in 1941-42. Concentrating on the activities of the 9th Australian Division, it recounts how this initially under-trained and under-equipped force withstood the assaults of the Afrika Korps, and the famous siege of Tobruk.
