"Lively writing by Gavin Mortimer, energetic artwork and magnetic photos illuminate a harrowing true story from World War II. The author's research and first-hand accounts are combined with maps, artwork and photos in this 80-page paperback. "Kill Rommel!" is a fascinating analysis of Operation Flipper and its influence on future commando missions." "--Toy Soldier & Model Figure" "Photos, maps and artwork capturing the raid's events augment this useful publication. An analysis (including a translated Italian report), aftermath, bibliography and index complete contents. Recommended." - David L. Veres, www.cybermodeler.com
