Abstract:

"Before Normandy, before Anzio, a fledgling Allied army of inexperienced officers and undertrained, ill-equipped troops launched a perilous amphibious invasion of unprecedented size and scope. Their mission: to fight their way across 1,200 miles of mountain and desert and wrest control of North Africa from the battle-hardened veterans of the Nazis' vaunted Afrika Korps, commanded by legendary Field Marshal Erwin Rommel - the Desert Fox.".

"Meeting the Fox tells the dramatic, but now almost forgotten, story of the first Americans to confront Hitler's war machine in battle. It takes you from the huge armada that landed more than 100,000 troops along the African coast, through bitter defeats in the dry hills of Tunisia, and on to a stunning victory after six months of savage fighting on land, on the sea, and in the air."--BOOK JACKET.
