"Unquestionably the finest narrative of tank warfare to come out of World War II."—Los Angeles Times
A tank officer's story of the desert war in North Africa, Brazen Chariots
is one of the most widely praised war books ever published. Major Robert Crisp recounts Operation Crusader, the great tank battle waged against Rommel's Afrika Korps on the borders of Egypt.
Robert Crisp was a South African Test cricketer, a major in the Third Royal Tank Regiment, and a journalist.
