Destiny in the Desert book. The title listing the Battle of El Alamein as the one that turned the tide of WWII might be a little over the top but it certainly was one of the battles that turned the tide. Strongly recommended.

It may almost be said, ‘Before Alamein we never had a victory. After Alamein we never had a defeat’. For historians of the Second World War, no battle is more controversial than El Alamein, nor are opinions of its victor, Lieutenant-General Bernard Montgomery, more divided. Then in 1960 came Correlli Barnett’s The Desert Generals, an angry book, by an historian rather than a former Eighth Army man, which set the agenda for the open warfare since.

What Dimbleby has done here is rare. Combining the overall strategic and political situation - well researched - with personal accounts of soldiers on the ground in what at time becomes a gripping narrative. Tactical maps and detailed unit deployments are not provided, so if that is what you desire in military history, you will not find it here. What you WILL find is a highly readable yet complex analytical narrative that combines the overall global strategic picture, the dynamics and communications of the key national leaders, the personal directives and well researched personal perspectives of the commanders, leavened with personal accounts of individual soldiers as these may illuminate the broader situation. Bravo I say. Rewarding for both novices and experienced students of military history. Superb~!

Very interesting and thorough discussion of the World leaders as well as the generals in the field. Very much enjoyed it except for the annoying extra space in every number with a comma.

Author's in depth analysis of the leaders of Allied & Axis countries & their policies was an inciteful & compelling picture of explanations of who, what & why! Recommend this book to everyone who seek an understanding of World War II.

A birthday present for grandson, who loves WWII History, it is an excellent historical reference for the end game solution to WWII.

Few authors have the ability to seamlessly weave the larger elements and drivers behind specific, and often under-appreciated, military events. Once again, ( His "Battle of the Atlantic" book is another example) Dimbleby achieves that feat.

WELL WRITTEN. NOT A LOT OF NEW INFORMATION, BUT DOES SHOW HOW POLITICS CAN SKEW THE BATTLEFIELD!

Although the subject of this book is intensely interesting, I found Dimbleby's treatment disappointing. The book is full of conclusory statements that I find hard to believe are other than his own thoughts of what others were thinking. There are also what I consider errors of fact, such as the oft-trepeated statement that the British were unaware of Hitler's invasion of Russia in the summer of 1941. Since the British had been sending warnings to Stalin -- which he ignored -- of the invasion, I find that statement preposterous.
I don't want to give the impression that this is a "bad" book, it is not. It just seems to me a bit shallow, disjointed and sophomoric. It's still a cracking good story, so I continued it to the end.
Excellent history of a period where I have not read much detail before. The travails of the British generals, of Rommel, the Italian generals and Mussolini, and of Churchill are well documented. The descriptions of the battles are detailed enough to give the reader an understanding without being too laborious. Overall this book held my attention from beginning to end!
