This book is as VAST as the Desert itself!
This book "LRDG Rhodesia" by Jonathan Pittaway is the first book to offer a full treatment on the Rhodesian contribution to the Long-Range Desert Group (LRDG) of World War II. This book is a heavily illustrated throughout with over 1000 photos, diagrams and line drawing, most previously unpublished spread across over 460 pages. The book covers the complete evolution from the early exploration days of testing concepts and experimenting with navigational methods (sun-compass) to the actual formation of the LRDG. The book details operations and missions and how the Rhodesian contributed to this organization. This is by far the best book I have ever read on the LRDG. What really makes this book interesting is it is written by men who were actually there which gives incredible insight to this unit.
