Description

The WWII battle of Sidi Rezegh was fought in November-December 1941, part of a campaign to retake eastern Libya and drive the enemy out of North Africa. It was partially successful and achieved the badly needed relief of Tobruk. The New Zealand Division played a major role in this complex campaign. Peter Cox sets the scene for the fighting in Libya, describes the unforgiving desert landscape, follows the stages of the action itself and recounts the often heroic stories of those who fought there.

The author

Peter Cox undertook detailed study of the battle of Sidi Rezegh to write his first book, Good Luck to All the Lads (2008), which told the wartime story of his father, Brian Cox, who fought at Sidi Rezegh. He has now written this more extensive and authoritative account of the battle.
