FEATURED EBOOK

It was the Allied victory at the Battle of El Alamein in November 1942 that inspired one of Churchill’s most famous aphorisms: “This is not the end, it is not even the beginning of the end, but it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.” And yet the true significance of this iconic episode remains unrecognized.
In this thrilling historical account, Jonathan Dimbleby describes the political and strategic realities that lay behind the battle, charting the nail-biting months that led to the victory at El Alamein in November 1942. It is a story of high drama, played out both in the war capitals of London, Washington, Berlin, Rome, and Moscow, and at the front, in the command posts and foxholes in the desert.
Destiny in the Desert
is about politicians and generals, diplomats, civil servants, and soldiers. It is about forceful characters and the tensions and rivalries between them.
Drawing on official records and the personal insights of those involved at every level, Dimbleby creates a vivid portrait of a struggle which for Churchill marked the turn of the tide—and which for the soldiers on the ground involved fighting and dying in a foreign land.
