Bar Cross over Desert Sand

subtitled: color photographic work of the German Afrika korps

Begins with the loading of troop ships destined for Africa and covers the history of the entire African
theater under General Erwin Rommel. With nice photos of tanks, uniforms, equipment, panzer units,
airplanes, soldiers, officers etc.

Here are some excerpts from an official contemporary book review:
Beginning in the spring of 1941 with the arrival the first units of the German Afrika Korps in Tripoli,
the Balkan Cross insignia of the German Luftwaffe has accompanied the battles and relentless
advance of the German and Italian Axis armies.
In vivid, poignant photographs, in first hand reports and graphic details, the events here in "Afrika"
have been brought once again to life for the reader to experience.
This work is dedicated as a monument to the memory of our unforgettable heroes
of the German Afrika Korps.
