Churchill: A Study in Greatness
|Формат:|| Страниц 400|
Североафриканская кампания во второй мировой войне и роль в ней фельдмаршала Эрвина...
Контрнаступление англичан вошло в историю под названием операция "Бревити". Сначала англичанам сопутствовал успех и все три главных цели наступления были достигнуты. Однако Роммель подтянул свои силы и через десять дней отбил у англичан потерянные пункты. В середине июня Черчиль (Churchill) приказал провести новое наступление с целью снять осаду с Тобрука. Силы англичан в Египте получили значительные подкрепления - множество танков и истребителей. Операция "Баттлэкс" началась 15 июня 1941 года. Уовелл попытался обойти немецкие позиции у Хальфайя и ударить в тыл противнику. Англичане продвигались вперед только три дня. У Хальфайя наступление генерала Уовелла захлебнулось. Немцы с большим успехом применили против английских танков установленные прямой наводкой 88-мм зенитные орудия. 16 июня Роммель приказал начать контрнаступление. Англичане были остановлены, а затем повернули назад. 17 июня немцы выбили англичан обратно в Египет и сняли осаду с Хальфайя. Во время операции "Баттлэкс" англичане потеряли 91 танк, в то время как потери немцев составили всего 12 танков. 21 июня генерал Уовелл был снят со своей должности и на его место назначили генерала Окинлека (Auchi leck).

|Churchill's First War. Young Winston and the Fight Against the Taliban Macmillan Publishers Coughlin C. |
Winston Churchill' s The Story of the Malakand Field Force, published in 1898, made his reputation as a writer - and as a soldier. More than 120 years later it is still reading for military commanders on the ground, both British and American. Now, acclaimed author and foreign correspondent Con Coughlin tells the story of that campaign, combining colourful historical narrative, interviews with contemporary key players and the journalist' s eye for both a good story and deep analysis. Churchill' s First War is not only a dramatic and vivid piece of military history but affords us a rare insight into both the nineteenth-century ' Great Game' and the twenty-first century conflict that has now raged longer than the Second World War and taken more lives than the Falklands. Incisive and deliciously readable Daily Express Over a century ago, a young cavalry lieutenant wrote a riveting account of what he saw during his first major campaign, a vicious war against tribal insurgents on the North-West Frontier.
