Those who imagined that the arrival of a major American force in North Africa would immediately tip the balance against Rommel's Afrika-Korps were to be proved wrong.

In his typically thorough and fast-moving style, Charles Whiting examines these events and the reasons for the debacle, which shook America deeply.
