A classic war book by one of the finest poets of the Second World War. Keith Douglas was posted to Palestine in 1941 with a cavalry regiment. When fighting broke out at El Alamein in 1942, he was instructed to stay behind as a staff officer. But he wanted to fight, and so, completely disobeying orders, he drove a truck to the sight of the battle and participated as a tank commander. "Alamein to Zem Zem" is a vivid and unforgettable description of his experiences on the desert battlefield, seen through the eyes of a poet-soldier. 'Highly charged, violent descriptive prose ...conveys the humor, the pathos and the literal beauty of that dead world of tanks, sand, scrub and human corpses ...Comparable in descriptive power and intelligence to the books of Remarque, Sassoon and Blunden which spoke in similar terms of 1914-1918' - "Spectator".
