Editor's Pick
17 August 2002

Sometimes when we run across an interesting/unusual/informative book, especially an old and out-of-print one, we like to bring it to your attention. Here's one:

The single best source of Axis planning for the assault on Malta is this volume from the Italian official history series, with complete details on how Operation C3 would have been conducted, had it not been cancelled after the fall of Tobruk in 1942. Grab your Italian-English dictionary....
