German Methods of Warfare in the Libyan Desert
Military Intelligence Service, Information Bulletin No. 20, July 1942
[DISCLAIMER: The following text is taken from a WWII U.S. War Department Information Bulletin. As with all wartime intelligence information, data may be incomplete or inaccurate. No attempt has been made to update or correct the text. Any views or opinions expressed do not necessarily represent those of the website.]

This bulletin has been prepared from first-hand reports on German methods of warfare as encountered in Libya; many of the documents are British in origin, but some of the more important are verbatim reprints of captured German orders. The bulletin will serve a dual purpose: (1) To provide all officers with reasonably confirmed information, and (2) to serve as material for lectures to troops. Many of the details can particularly be stressed while troops are in training to deal with enemy tanks. However, the application of this information must be in accordance with the tactics, technique, and procedure prescribed in the pertinent manuals of the U.S. Army.
