Armor #1 – The Battle of North Africa – Craig DiLouie – Review

“Armor #1: The Battle of North Africa is an instant classic of World War II historical fiction, and certainly DiLouie’s greatest novel so far in his career as a writer. It is brilliantly written, populated with realistic and entirely human characters who stay with you long after finishing the last page, and is searingly, unflinchingly open about the realities of combat during World War II as experienced by the crew of an M4 Sherman medium tank. It takes the best elements of the dime store genre and blends it seamlessly with DiLouie’s inherent skill as a writer and his phenomenal imagination.”
