Editor's Pick
20 September 2005

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

Orpen, Neil. South African Forces World War II: East African and Abyssinian Campaigns. Cape Town: Purnell, 1968

In a conflict far removed from industrialized mass armies engaged in a war to the death in Europe, Orpen meticulously describes in considerable detail low-intensity battles and marches more closely resembling a Victorian colonial campaign of the 19th Century.
