    The Tunisian Campaign in 1942 and 1943 was a key campaign in the outcome of the Second World War in Europe and the Mediterranean It was the first campaign where the British Army and American Army fought alongside each other and where several of the key individuals who were to play a role in the campaign in North West Europe first worked together This campaign also exposed the personalities of these key individuals some of whom prospered and others waned The campaign was also long bloody and resulted in the deaths of many menThis book is the best book to provide an overview and details of the whole campaign It is well written and contains some good photographs and information tables It has maps to provide context of key battles This book is thoroughly recommended to anyone who had a relative who fought in this campaign or anyone interested in military history during the Second World War
