I like this book. At times, scenes are imagined but there is a wealth of detail and a refreshing, sassy tone to the book that makes it accessible to those of us in the modern age. In terms of history, it gets better as it goes along; the more modern the era the more compelling the narrative is.

Definitely worth looking for in the used section of the local bookstore, or perhaps Amazon.

“Chariots of the Desert”, by David Eshel

I’ve read a number of books about the various parts of this conflict, and I’m looking hard for a first person account of the Six Day War I read as a teen (all I can recall are bits and pieces, though). This book came recommended somewhere. It could be Tanknet, it could just be on the dozens of forums I’ve read looking for tank stats. This book though has to be  the best narrative that focuses on the development of the Israeli Tank Corps. It is particularly useful to the historian or wargamer in its wealth of detail. It lists all the  tanks used by the Israelis and then discusses the tanks they faced. A good appendix covers the T-62, for example.

As far as I know, the book is not in print, but is relatively easy to find as a used copy in the usual places, such as Amazon.com.

The IMSTRAT Tobruk map (Andrew Tullson’s work)

Made by Andrew Tullson of Print n Play Productions, this map has been a delight, and worth every moment of the five weeks it took to wait for Andrew’s busy schedule to clear so he could make it.

I received a bunch of counters from him as well. As I make my own counters these days, I can say without hesitation that the counters he makes are first rate. You won’t be disappointed if you contract his services.
