Almásy's complete works on CD (Released September 2008)

The complete english translation of "The Unknown Sahara" and "In Air...on Sand", complete with added paragraphs from "Recentes explorations...", the SNR article "Bir Bidi", the transcript of 1942 Operation Salaam diary, some chapters from "With Rommel's Army in Libya" and a partial translation of Széchenyi's "Hengergö Homok" (Rolling Sands). The text is supplemented with the complete set of original photos from ALL of Almásy's published works, plus other historical sources as well as my own photos of places mentioned in the narrative. There are several explanatory notes and copies of historical records to supplement Almásy's own writings, making this compilation the most complete resource on Almásy's Libyan Desert activities.
