Military Operations in the Desert

General Erskine was GOC British Forces in Egypt in 1950, and wrote two short pamphlets designed to promote discussion on desert warfare. The two pamphlets are printed together and allow changes in emphasis to be seen. The experiences written of were gained by the British Army in the long campaign in the desert during the first half of the Second World War - and they are relevant today. Well worth the read to get a feel for operating in deserts and how to prevent issues typical of the terrain and climate.
