A "moving, exciting and authentic" chronicle of the British Army's legendary recon and raiding unit in the desert of North African during WWII (The Observer).
During its two-and-a-half years fighting in North Africa, from 1940 to 1943, the Long Range Desert Group became the acknowledged master of the desert. This small, highly mobile force made a name for itself through daring exploits and vital reconnaissance far behind enemy lines. Emerging from the depths of the desert, the LRDG would raid airfields or attack Axis lines of communication along the Mediterranean coast—then vanish, only to reappear hundreds of miles away.
First published in 1945, Long Range Desert Group is a classic of military nonfiction. With its brilliant description of the desert's harsh beauty and its exciting chronicle of LRDG activities, it has lost none of its gripping, visceral power.
"A remarkable record, told simply, unpretentiously and with engaging humor." —The Manchester Guardian
