Fascinating, thought-provoking and entertaining. Explodes a number of self-serving myths -- Andrew Roberts (on 'Destiny in the Desert: The Road to El Alamein') Fresh and provocative -- Peter Snow (on 'Destiny in the Desert') A wonderfully incisive, superbly written history. What Dimbleby has nailed so brilliantly is what so many war historians miss: the big picture -- Saul David (on 'Destiny in the Desert') Dimbleby expertly weaves dramatic events and the decisions and dilemmas of the great war leaders ... with real pace, drama and insight -- Dr Niall Barr (on 'Destiny in the Desert') Superbly paced and expressed -- Allan Mallinson (on 'Destiny in the Desert')
