Tricolor over the Sahara the desert battles of the Free French, 1940-1942 by Edward L Bimberg( )

12 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of the early struggles of an ill-equipped ragtag French force, among the first to pledge its loyalty to General de Gaulle. It fought a lonely, almost secret war against the numerically superior Italian troops deep in the wildest parts of the Sahara, hundreds of miles from the main campaigns along the African coast. These daring Free French raids with their long thirsty treks and small-scale oasis battles have been nearly forgotten, although their path is marked by the graves of many hundreds of French, Italian, and native soldiers. Bimberg details the exotic units that participated in this struggle, including the Tirailleurs Senegalaise du T'chad (African Infantry), the Compagnies Sahariennes (Saharan Camel Companies), and the Groupe Nomade du Tibesti (a tribal militia recruited in the Tibesti Mountain region of the great desert)

Mountain warriors : Moroccan goums in World War II by Edward L Bimberg( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recruited from the Atlas Mountains in Africa, the Moroccan Goums were the knife-wielding irregular troops who distinguished themselves in tenacious fighting in Tunisia, Italy, France, and Germany during World War II, terrifying the enemy with their ferocity and odd appearance in traditional garb. Because of their skills in mountain warfare, General Patton specifically requested their participation in the campaign for Sicily, and they fought brilliantly in this and many other key campaigns. -- Publisher description
