This competition is for the perfect RUM RATION book - it is nearly all pictures!! 8) What it is though is a great pictorial depiction of the Deutchesafrikakorps in action and at rest. This book would be ideal for people interested in the desert warfare and also military modellers. For a chance to win one of four copies of this book just go to the entry form on Survey Monkey, complete the extremely simple questions correctly and you will be in with a shout.

The book review can be found here.

The competition will run until Sunday 24th March 2013.

Hmmm, interesting book indeed - particularly as I'm writing an Afrikakorps-heavy book of my own right now :)

Michael Olive knows his stuff - he used to be (and may still be) involved in JJF publishing (J. J. F. Publishing), who for a long time were pretty much the only people in the WW2 German memoir / unit history game.

If it whets your appetite for DAK and PzAOK Afrika, I can heartily recommend Bernd Pietz's book:

Das Afrikakorps: In Original-Farbfotografien: Amazon.de: Bernd Peitz: Bücher

and in English

kindly e-mail all the answers as I wish to check them before posting of my answers, plagiarism at its best

One I actually knew the answers to without looking, but still double checked in case of any sneakiness.
