The Day Rommel first tasted defeat
by Richard R. Tryon

The first battle of El Alemein was small by comparison to the second, but it was far more crucial to the Allies. If it had been lost, the Germans would have almost certainly taken Cairo and linked up with forces coming south from Russia to encircle all of the Medeterranian basin.Who knows what that would have done to change the course of world history?


A life long student of the history of WWII, Tryon found anunusual piece of history in his own family many years after the war was over.
