Synopsis

Synopsis

Osprey's study of patrolmen of the Long Range Desert Group of World War II (1939-1945). Nicknamed the 'Libyan Desert Taxi Service' by the SAS, the Long Range Desert Group was tasked with strategic reconnaissance and raiding operations deep inside the enemy-held deserts of North Africa. Armed with light weapons only, and equipped with specially converted light cars and trucks capable of withstanding the harsh conditions, the LRDG quickly proved it could operate in parts of the desert which other troops, including the enemy, found impassable. This new Warrior title examines the soldiers of the LRDG from the group's formation, through training, to combat in vast, lonely, and deadly deserts of North Africa.

"The author included over 50 photographs, many of which are from the archives of the Imperial War Museum. Also included are specially commissioned artworks of seven plates detailing uniforms, equipment and weaponry of the LRDG patrolmen, as well as maps and battle scene art." -www.mataka.org (November 2010)

"This is a handy and worthwhile reference for those who have an interest in this theatre of operations or who would just like to get further information on this unit." - Alan McNeilly, www.armorama.com
