This book tells the story of Alamein and eleven days that would change the course of history. Set in October 1942, Britain and its allies were in trouble, as Germany and its Axis partners were winning ground everywhere. But it was in this North Africa battle that the stand was made and that the tide of World War II began to turn. The battle unfolds through the eyes of seven dynamic characters, many of whom are based on real people, including a Scottish brigade, a young lieutenant, an Australian sergeant and an Italian commander. An outstanding and unforgettable historical novel full of determination and courage from Iain Gale, the author of Four Days in June.
