My entry for the BrickPirate challenge "Comme dans un livre ouvert". (As in an open book) Heia Safari! by Veynom, on Flickr The goal of the challenge is to select a book, build it (open or closed and then depict a scene from it. Heia Safari! by Veynom, on Flickr I have been highly impressed by the “Rommel Papers” book since I first read it 25 ears ago. This is a book collecting the notes written by the German field marshal Rommel during WW2, edited by the historian Liddell Hart and amended by General Bayerlein and Rommel’ son. For the contest, I decided to depict a possible scene from the North African campaign. We see an English Bren Carrier having been captured by the Afrika Korps and immediately re-used. It has been equipped with a 3.7cm PAK 36 light gun and is now patrolling in the desert. Many Bren Carriers were captured by German forces in France and in North Africa, so it is common to see them re-used, particularly in North Africa where German supplies were sparse. Documentation exists about the PAK 36 variant, but I could not confirm that such variant actually served in North Africa. Heia Safari! by Veynom, on Flickr “Heia Safari” is an old marching song from 1916 and used by the German Afrika Korps during their campaign.
