The War Illustrated on Operation CRUSADER

Today, after purchasing some copies of the War Illustrated on Ebay, I came across this very nice site, which has a full WW2 collection of them online (table of contents for each one, and a number of online articles). There’s quite a bit of things relating to CRUSADER, including two feature articles.

The first article on CRUSADER is at this link – in this one you’ll find a link to the next one. There are some smaller articles throughout the following issues, e.g. on the capture of General von Ravenstein of 21. Panzerdivision, or the performance of the 25-pdr in the AT role. They are well worth reading because they give us an indication of how people thought the war was going at the time.
