Inside the Afrika Korps

The German Afrika Korps was an outstanding military organisation that experienced both the height of glory and the depth of defeat in the Western Desert campaign.

This in-depth investigation examines the battles of the Afrika Korps as seen through the eyes of a trained general staff officer under Rommel, and gives a key insight into this formidable fighting force at the height of its powers.

Colonel Kriebel’s debrief undertaken by the US Army Intelligence Service forms the basis of this book, which has been edited and placed in context by an acknowledged authority on the German forces of the Second World War as part of the American military historical programme. His account highlights the German response to the Allied Crusader offensive and the brilliant series of actions that followed, and analyses the potent genius and fatal flaws of Erwin Rommel’s generalship.

Inside the Afrika Korps exposes the secrets of this exemplary fighting force’s success as well as highlighting those weaknesses which led to its eventual defeat.
