"The author covers the usual sections of a book in Osprey's Campaign series. It has a build up to the battle, a look at opposing commanders and their armies. Then it covers both the Allied and German plans at the time before going into the battle itself. This part consumes much of the book and provides significant detail of each day of the fighting. This is all followed by the results of the battle and how it affected future actions, which in the desert war, often resulted in major change." --Scott Van Aken, (July 2008)"Ken Ford's Gazala 1942: Rommel's Greatest Victory provides an in-depth, technical survey of the Rommel military campaign and battle experiences, studying him at the height of his powers and surveying his strategy. Color maps and vintage black and white photos throughout enhance a moving account." --The Bookwatch (September 2008)"Ford's book is a brief but masterful study of Rommel at the height of his power as he swept the British Eighth Army back to the site of their decisive stand at El Alamein." --World War II History (March 2009)
