Formed in North Africa just before the commencement of hostilities, it served throughout the entire Desert campaign, ending the war in North-West Europe with the capture of Hamburg and Berlin. The first volume (compiled by Carver) covers the division's service from formation to entry into Tunis in May 1943; the second volume (with foreword by Montgomery and introduction by Lyne) takes the story from Sicily to Berlin.
