    While the failure of the Luftwaffe to overcome the RAF in 1940 brought an end to major confrontations on the Western Front until the Normandy invasion four years later, in North Africa British troops toiled away in hellish conditions from mid 1940 until May 1943, when victory in Tunisia proved the tide of the war had finally turned. This account of the desert campaign highlights the human experience of the attritional fighting through the testimonies of surviving 'Desert Rats'.
