Comments: This leather-bound book was published to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Battle of Alamein. Along with the similarly bound History of Warfare by Montgomery, El Alamein is one of the most attractive copies of any World War II signed historical narratives. A beautiful addition to any collection.
