General Lunsford Errett Oliver (1889 - 1978) wrote this article about his experiences commanding the American Army in Tunisia. As many of you may know, the American efforts in North Africa were fraught with many difficulties, the least of them were the Germans. The biggest one referred to by the general was the total lack of air cover for his advancing army:

"I am thoroughly convinced no army can get anywhere without adequate air support... The Germans, thus far, have worked air support for ground soldiers to a far better degree than we have. I don't see any reason why we shouldn't develop such co-ordination."

American Heritage Magazine has a very thorough article on the American Army's frustrations during the North Africa campaigns, click here to read it...
