Iron Hulls Iron Hearts

Great book, its on the Italian Armored and Motorized Divisions in North Africa. I finished reading it today. I didnt realize that the Centauro Armored Division had a major roll in smashing the Americans at Kasserine Pass. It wasnt just a German effort as myth and propaganda would have you believe. It was (if I remember) the 15th Panzer and Centauro Armored Division commanded by Rommel. It would be the last time Rommel commanded Italian troops before he left North Africa. Its amazing what you find out when you read and do a little research. I highly recommend the book.
