Fighting with the Desert Rats, Major H.P. Samwell MC.
The memoirs of an infantry officer in the Desert Rats, written during
the war and left unmodified after the author's death in combat in 1945.
Gives a good idea of the chaos at the front and the very different
atmosphere behind the lines. Also stands out for the author's interest
in the views of other nationalities, and his interviews with
representatives of the many different communities of North Africa.
