After a long wait and hard work, it finally seems that Ludovico Slongo's and mine "Desert Prelude" will be published during the spring of 2010. The size of the book has caused the publisher MMPBooks (http://www.mmpbooks.biz/mmp/index.php) to split it into two parts and it's the first part that due for publishing this spring. This first part will cover operations from 10 June 1940 until 30 November 1940. It will have around 220 pages in A4 format. I recently finished working with the names that are to be included in the index and this includes more than 1200 names (more than 700 Italian and 450 Commonwealth).
