The book contains color and black & white illustrations and experiences of DAK soldiers in North Africa - the climate, landscape, enemy and exposure to new and old cultures.

Paintings by artist Wilhelm Wessel accompany the stories, and he was uniquely qualified to illustrate this book. Wessel had made a multi-year study trip through Egypt and the near East before his service as an Officer in a Panzer-Grenadier Regiment during the 1940 Wehrmacht campaign in the West. He was severely wounded at the start of the invasion of the Soviet Union and after recuperating he joined Generalfeldmarschall Erwin Rommel's Panzerarmee in North Africa as a Kriegsmaler or War Painter.
Mit Rommel in der Wüste is a very nice eyewitness report of the Deutsche Afrikakorps and its men during battle in North Africa.
This example is in very good used condition with its original dust jacket which shows some wear (see photo at the top of this web page). The book has a 1944 dedication to a man named Hans Hermann on the front fly leaf as well as his name and address stamp.
