There’s a battle with the Free French (and some Australians) in Syria and Lebanon where there’s French Foreign Legion troops fighting each other on BOTH sides (the other Foreign Legion troops are fighting for Vichy France). Might have been the Battle of KissouΓ© (but that’s from memory). The whole theatre in the middle east is usually ignored as the campaigns weren’t that long, but they were the site of some particularly fierce and bitter fighting.

I do like Rommel, not because of his fame or strategies, but because he was basically just a soldier fighting for what was best for Germany.

I’ve heard of Bir Hakeim before, but should really read up on it.

The history is a much-appreciated bit of flavor for already stellar coverage.
