Tim Jackson, North Africa, WWIIBook - 2008
His extremely dangerous job is to clear out enemy land mines so the Allied forces can proceed. The problem is that the mined land is right between two battling forces, the British 8th Army and the German army under General Rommel -- the dreaded Desert Fox. Rommel believed that his minefields around Alamein were invincible -- an area so heavily mined it was called "The Devil's Garden," with over half a million land mines in one section alone.
The sappers' success was crucial in allowing Allied forces to proceed. When they did, Rommel's forces were routed. Rommel later said that the defeat of the German armies by Montgomery's forces resulted in Germany losing the war. Each title in the My Story series takes the reader on an adventure through a pivotal time in history. The books, written in first-person, are both exciting and fast-paced.
