Acclaimed author of Gates of Fire, Steven Pressfield vividly dramatizes epic military conflicts. In Killing Rommel, Pressfield again combines historical accuracy with edge-of-your-seat battle scenes to create riveting fiction. Bythe fall of 1942, Rommel’s Panzers have routed Britain’s Eighth Army in North Africa and are poised to capture Egypt, the Suez Canal, and the Middle Eastern oil fields. To stop Rommel, England deploys a new breed of highly mobile, heavily armed “scorpion” commandos.

Classics, history, historical fiction, marketing, Napoleonic stuff and of course 'Boys own Adventure'. This is my bent. Occasional self help as well.
Already have. Any World War Two fan, especially of the North African campaign will love this book.
Being ex Armoured Corps you instantly click with trials and tribulations of keeping vehicles in the field.

Where the bloody hell is Rommel?
This book would make a great film. The New Zealanders are fantastic in this book and I have a new respect for their fighting spirit. The book does not waffle and gives enough detail to paint a picture of war, comradeship and leadership. The ending is a little weak but that is forgivable.
This was an awesome book from start to finish.
The story drew me in and was difficult to walk away from.
Avid audible listener for over 10 years.
I had this book in my wish list for over a year. I finally purchased it and really enjoyed it. You have to like WWII books to appreciate it. It's definately not a romance. Great history of campaign in North Africa. Parts of it reminded me off the old TV show The Rat Patrol. Parts reminded me if the beginning of the movie Patton. The way the story was told was quite interesting and gave you a final conclusion. It's sad to think that veterans if WWII will all soon be gone. So in summary if you like war books, guns, and battles you will like this book.
Outstanding historical fiction
I have not experienced another book quite like it.
Chapman, the main character, was performed very well.
I almost wanted to listen to the whole book in one sitting.
